In Nigeria, agriculture, hitherto the mainstay of the economy has been replaced with oil, which currently accounts for about 90 per cent of the nation's revenue. However, the federal government has instituted reforms in the agriculture sector and is working assiduously to ensure that it regains its lost glory. At the state level, realising the importance of agriculture, some governments have taken up the gauntlet to pursue far-reaching reforms and programmes in the sector. They have actually taken their destinies in their own hands. One of such states is Ogun, which has made agriculture a major part of Governor Ibikunle Amosun-led administration's agenda. In fact, the state's programme on agriculture tagged: "Agricultural Production Leading to Industrialisation," is the third of the five cardinal programmes of the administration. http://allafrica.com/stories/201401060463.html Ban on rice'll increase local production - - Stakeholders Allafrica, January 3, 2013 For local rice production to increase in the country, stakeholders have called for the ban of imported rice as they express displeasure over the N365 billion spent every year on rice importation into the country's markets.

One of the solutions researchers have proposed is genetically modifying foods to increase yield, pest- and disease-resistance, and nutritiondensity. As this GMO-approach continues to garner criticism globally, despite increasing acceptance of products like Golden Rice that provide important vitamins to those most at risk, food fortification may become a popular alternative. http://oryza.com/grain-interest/fortified-rice-critical-ingredient-feeding-growing-world-population Recherche / Research IRRI trials show 45% higher yield in flood-resistant 'swarna-sub1' rice variety Oryza, January 27, 2014 Trials on the Indian flood-resistant hybrid rice variety 'Swarna-Sub1' show that the variety can produce 45% higher yield even when it was submerged underwater for 14 to 17 days, compared to ‘Swarna’, a rice variety commonly cultivated in eastern India, according to sources. http://oryza.com/news/research-development/irri-trials-show-45-higher-yield-flood-resistant-swarna-sub1rice-variety Like 'white on rice', or rice for white?
