Feeding the world

Nigeria is projected to pass the 300 million mark and overtake the United States to become the third most populous country in the world shortly before 2050. 

The Consul-General of Denmark in Lagos, Per Christensen, on Monday said that Nigeria could produce food for some 600million people through the application of the right technology.

He said: “Let me say that the agricultural development potential in Nigeria is bigger than that of Brazil when Nigerian farmers engage in technology farming. The consul-general said it was imperative for Nigeria to rededicate herself to increasing food production for Nigerians, as well as regaining her position as a net food exporter.
