Agriculture in Nigeria contributes more than 30% of GDP, thus it is the largest contributor to the Nigerian economy. Rapid growth in agriculture is essential for broad based economic growth thus, requiring sound use of science and technology embodied in improved seed, fertilizers, crop protection products and other agronomic practices. However, without an efficient and cost effective supply of these inputs at the farm gate, science based growth in agricultural productivity cannot be achieved.

As on today, agriculture input market is fragmented and under developed in Nigeria. The private sector has the potential to supply agricultural inputs in a cost effective manner.

To help develop efficient distribution system and supply quality and new agric input products in the country, West African Cotton Co.
