Oil Palm Plantation Riches in Nigeria

In 2005, in order to stimulate local production and attain self sufficiency in vegetable oil production in Nigeria, the government introduced the presidential initiative on the development of vegetable oil over a period not exceeding three {3} years. Under the programme, attention was focused on the promotion of eleven scheduled oil seed crops and oil palm was one and it's production target was one million {1,000,000} hectares capable of producing fifteen million {15,000,000} fresh fruit bunches.

After five {5} years of implementing the initiative ,though the production level of vegetable in the country has improved ,the domestic edible oil demands far exceeds the national production leaving a short fall in supply estimated at three hundred thousand {300,000} MT yearly and making the price of crude palm oil more expensive locally than in the international market.
