Crops like rice are also not left out as most locally produced rice naturally more nutritious but less patronised compared to the imported variety simply because the Nigerian farmer thinks his job ends with the harvesting of his rice: others buy the unpeeled rice, process, package and market it and end up with higher gains than the farmer.Farmers in Bauchi State who operate under the Fadama 3 have broken the jinx by adding value to most of the crops they produce through the establishment of several industries in the local government areas of the state that process, package and market the products thereby maximizing profit for the farmers.
