Agriculture is the most basic form of human activities in the
whole world. It is the most important occupation. Infact, the source of food
and development in Oredo Local Government Area. Yet agricultural development is
still at primary level in study area. The research looks at the climate, soils,
relief, economic market and social factors as constants of agricultural
development in the study area. The farmers from the Local Government Area were
randomly selected. 200 questionnaires were distributed to various farmers in
the area of study.

Conclusion and recommendations
is the most basic form of human activities in the whole world. It includes the
cultivation of crops as well as rearing of animals for human uses. Today in
Nigeria, about 70% of its population is engaged in this activity. Despite the large
number of people engaged in this activity in the country and the whole world in
general, the activity is not 100% successful. Norman (1981) grouped the
development of agriculture in the world into four. Thus: physical, social,
economical and political constraints. In the developed countries the physical
and economic constraints are taken care of: now left with the problem of the
developing countries especially in the savannahs (Sudan and Sahel) where there
is series of aridity condition, the most dominant problem in every country or
nation, at least must have one or two of these problems which militate against
the development of agriculture in the region.
STATEMENT OF PROBLEM
large number of people engaged in agricultural activity in the study area, yet
agriculture is still at the primary level. The study is therefore set out to
find out the solution to the following questions:
1.What are the factors militating against
agricultural development in the study area?
2.To what extent does the factors militating
against agricultural development affects agricultural development in the study
3.What are then possible solutions to the problem
caused by these factors in the study area?
OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY
research will therefore attempt:
1.To find out the factors militating against the
agricultural development in Oredo Local Government Area.
2.To find out the extent to which the problem
affects the development of agriculture in the study area.
3.To offer suggestions for the solution to the
