Driven by the various initiatives by the government for increasing the crop protection industry and increasing focus on food security, the crop protection market in Nigeria has ample growth potential in the coming years.
Increasing Population: In recent years, the population of Nigeria has been growing at an average rate of 2.6%. According to United Nations projections, the population of Nigeria is expected to reach over 400 million by 2050. This increasing population creates a need for greater food production, and farmers are resorting to crop protection products to increase their crop yield. In addition, with more people in urban areas, farmers are facing pressure to grow more high-value crops, such as fruits and vegetables, which are more vulnerable to pests and diseases, thus requiring more crop protection products.
Adoption of New technologies: The use of new technologies like genetically modified (GM) crops and the use of precision agriculture has boosted the crop protection market in Nigeria. GM crops are plants that have been genetically engineered to be more resistant to pests and diseases, thus reducing the need for chemical pesticides and herbicides. This technology is particularly useful for crops that are vulnerable to specific pests or diseases, such as cassava, which is a staple food crop in Nigeria and is commonly attacked by pests such as the cassava mealybug and the cassava green mite.
Furthermore, the use the precision agriculture technologies like GPS, drones and sensors has also contributed in the growth of the market. These technologies are used to gather data on crop health, soil conditions, and weather patterns and then this data is further used to create highly detailed maps of fields and to make decisions about planting, fertilizing, and pest management. These new technologies have boosted the growth in crop protection market in Nigeria.
Government Initiatives: Government has implemented many initiatives in the Nigerian crop protection market such as Presidential Fertilizer Initiative (PFI). The PFI is a government program that aims to increase the use of fertilizers and other crop inputs, including crop protection products, to improve crop yields and the productivity of the agriculture sector in Nigeria. The initiative includes the establishment of a fertilizer blending plant, which aims to produce and distribute affordable and high-quality fertilizers to farmers at reduced costs. The PFI also includes a subsidy component which aims to reduce the cost of fertilizers for farmers and make them more affordable, thus increasing the use of fertilizers and other crop inputs, including crop protection products.
