It very sad that our rich men, politicians and ambassadors are blinded by oil and never capitalize on our own pride "Agriculture"
In agreement to the statistics by Chamber of Commerce, the agricultural products export stratum is briskly on the rise.
It is a very important natural fibre and this is what we use in making our cloths,bedsheets, curtains etc.The seed oil can be used in either food or cosmetics.
Recently the world leather products are currently on the higher level of demand. The raw material for the leather & it's products are majorly come from livestocks and of course Nigeria has the 3rd biggest livestock most populous in the whole Africa.
This leather can be use in so many ways, it can be use for binding, footwears, watches, accessories etc.
This slow animal also bring fast and lot of money cause Nigerian snail are highly demanded in the European Countries and America. This doesn't demand lot of investment even a man with average lifestyle can invest in it cause you don't need to buy food all they need is care and attention but they barely fall sick, the better part of it is they rapidly reproduce.
Very straight to state that Agriculture is taking the space today in Nigeria, with the discussed specializations on cotton and snail, they are very lucrative. Come to think of rearing snails, you will have more hundreds of snails in few months and numbering to thousands. With good management, you will suffer lesser loss and making huge gains or profit in this business is guaranteed.
Your right,I was actually thinking of doing that snail business, although I have not started but it in my plan to do so soon, almost every agricultural business is lucrative because people demand for these products everyday,be if fish farming or poultry
I know someone who has actually risen from the ashes of poverty to a stable financial status by simply invest time and energy into this snail business. From her endeavors I have seen that the snail business is not really stressful but very profitable.
You are correct dear. Nigeria government and our leaders have been blinded by the so called crude oil. Agriculture which used to be our main source of income and revenue for the time has been left out. If you go to the said bank if agriculture to get loan for agriculture, no body will listen to you. Nigeria is really in trouble. May God help us
Wow so snail can be this important.The problem is from the government, instead of them to use government revenue to fund seminars and other awareness campaign to educate the masses about this kind of thing, they prefer using it for their own personal gains.its really interesting to know that this platform can be this educative.
Have see alot of people who have become successful in snail rearing business, almost every carteen buy snail and rearing snail is not stressful you can start the business almost any where in you house it doesn't require a large site before you can rear it.
I think the reason people don't venture into agriculture is because they think its for people living in the village. Only if hey could open their eyes and see the possibilities. These areas you mentioned snail rearing and cotton they are very productive. But they sure aren't for the lazy. Nothing good comes easy so you have to be focused and hardworking and be ready for anything.
Also another lucrative business you can do that will fetch you good money is poultry. Poultry business is one that you can start with little capital and little space. Now the government has closed the border for the importation of birds and since the festive period is coming soon, the price of chicken will increase. Now think of it..if you start raising your birds now..they will attain maturity before December and you will make your money quick.
Cotton is always in high demand anytime anyday but don't know about snails because most people that I've seen aren't snail fans but who knows there maybe tons of people out there who love it. Cashew nuts are also very lucrative business to run
Snail breeding is one of the lucrative agricultural business is very easy to start, it requires small capitals, labour , land and for more profits one should go for the right breed. The most amazing part of it is that you don't buy food or waste money on feed and medications because they don't easy sick or sick at all just make sure they have this comfortable environment cool little moisturise.
One doing or that is into snail can also go into order business, snail farming can b sometimes intercropped with banana or plaintain
There's a woman near my mom's Shop, she's dealing with snails and believe me the woman has 2 house by now, I never knew the business is lucrative like that, I only see the woman as one poor woman trying to survive until I heard she has 2 house, I was shocked
The world is fast changing and its also realising that the only thing that can sustain humans is developing agriculture. Forget the evolution in technology, agriculture is the what kept the old world and its still keeping the present world and will still help the new world survive.
I studied Agriculture in school and I also practice agriculture. I am a cucumber farmer and I can say that cucumber farming amongst other agricultural products are lucrative when done in the right way with care. Snail rearing is also lucrative and requires little capital.
Yes,indeed heliculture is really lucrative,its not a stressful something,zeal and determination is also needed because even as its not a money and time consuming stuff,if there is no determination,one can still quit after starting (i am a testimony to that)

The need for agriculture can't be overemphasize. It is either we make money out of it and also eat enough. It is high time the government give adequate attention
Agriculture today has created so many job opportunities for the unemployed. Not just that, due to modern technology it's now easier to go into agriculture without much stress. Although some aspects of it might demand a huge capital to start such as pigery, fishery, and poutry. But when you know how to manage the business and the animals you'll gain more than you've invested
I've always believed in cotton as one of the most lucrative business around Nigeria and the world at large but not snail business, I've never heard of snail business that's lucrative as this nnu has taught me so much that I can even be my own business owner
This is what the Nigerian economy needs right now. Nigerian agricultural products are in high demand all over the world and we need to build on what we're good at to bette r our economy
I just hope the government can help by shifting the nation from oil based exports to agricultural based exports. The rate of demand of Nigeria agricultural products is on the high side and we need to shift our focus to the agricultural sector.
Agriculture is the best thess are not the only lucrative business in agriculture,we have cocoa out there,we have horticulture (bee farming) and so on .. I pray this government helps in identifying agriculture as major income to help our country.
Agriculture was nigeria first means of income and it build nigeria economy in such a way that Nigeria was tagged giant of Africa before decovery of oil the same can be done now though the little effort of current administration show that agriculture can restructure nigeria again
Starting from our educational system,agriculture both as a course and field of study has been greatly looked down upon as not been relevant even in the higher Institutions when you tell someone you're studying agriculture they feel like youre just wasting your time
If agriculture were to be looked into in the nearest future it'll be of a great impact to our economy in terms of financial and economic growth
Although both business are good, but it's good and lucrative for now till the government decides to private and decide to make all organic matters used in the process very costly and unavailable for those that are not working with and for the government. But we all need to start looking for other business beyond exporting and importing, I mean business that are indigenous, that even the third class citizen can pay and afford your services.
Poultry is also a very lucrative business. Not only do you make huge sales on the eggs. You also get to increase your prices according to season and also make huge profit from your chickens especially during the Christmas season. This is a business that doesn't go out of Vogue. One just needs to have a very good management skills. Cucumber is also one of the fast growing business ideas.
