Models of Contract Farming for Pro-Poor Growth in Nigeria


The objectives of the study are threefold: (a) to examine the nature of institutional linkages between small-scale farmers and firms in the Nigerian agribusiness sector. The key institutional issues to be addressed here include the design of contracts and enforcement of contracts, types of enterprises involved and services provided, formal and informal arrangements involved and governance of the relationships, (b) to analyse the impact of the institutional linkages with a view to ascertaining whether or not they are supportive of pro-poor growth especially in terms of investment in agriculture, access to production credit, access to market and farm income; and (c) to determine factors influencing the performance of the contractual relationships.
