INSTRUCTION: Answer Five (5) Questions Only, One (1) From each Sections.
(i) Creation of Infrastructure: The development of agriculture requires roads, market yards, storage, transportation railways, postal services and many others for an infrastructure creating demand for industrial products and the development of commercial sector.
(ii) Pre-Requisite for Raw Material: Agricultural advancement is necessary for improving the supply of raw materials for the agro-based industries. Processing of these raw materials helps in manufacturing products for several uses which has a positive impact in a nation’s development
(iii) Provision of Surplus: The progress in agricultural sector provides surplus for increasing the exports of agricultural products. In the earlier stages of development, an increase in the exports earning is more desirable because of the greater strains on the foreign exchange situation needed for the financing of imports of basic and essential capital goods.
(iv) Relief from Shortage of Capital: The development of agricultural sector has minimized the burden of several developed countries who were facing the shortage of foreign capital. Agriculture sector requires less capital for its development thus it minimizes growth problem of foreign capital.
(v) Source of Foreign Exchange for the Country: When the raw material is available in abundance, the country can become a primary exporter of the products and generate a good income. As the international market is very dynamic and since the price of raw material is constantly fluctuating, the developing countries have now started focusing on the export of manufactured foods to increase the percentage of foreign income.
(i) Land tenure system: The type of land tenure system (communual) does not allow for large farm holdings suitable for mechanisation.
(ii) Scattered farm holdings: Scattered farm holdings are also not conducive or economical for mechanisation, especially in Nigeria.
(iii) Poverty of farmers: Most farmers, especially in Nigeria are very poor and cannot afford the cost tractors and farm implements.
(iv) Inadequate facilities (machinery): The facilities or machinery for fabricating and repairing farm implements are grossly insufficient where they are available.
(v) Bad topography: The topography of most Nigeria landscape is too rough and unconducive for farm mechanisation.
(i) Inadequate finance
(ii) Poor infrastructure
(iii) Land tenure system

Heterotrophism is the ability to produce organic material only from organic carbon sources obtained from animal or plant biosynthesis.
(i) Biotic component
(ii) Abiotic component
(i) Industrial use
(ii) Construction purpose
(i) It does not include any fossil deposits.
(ii) Most of the igneous forms include more than one mineral deposit.
(iii) They can be either glassy or coarse.
(iv) These usually do not react with acids.
(i) helps to grow agricultural crops, and maintain landscapes.
(ii) helps to grow agricultural revegetate disturbed soils in dry areas and during periods of less than average rainfall.
(iii) it also help in controlling the amount of water can be supplied through artificial means such as pipes, ditches, sprinklers etc.
(iv) It also help plant absorb mineral nutrients from the irrigated soil. In other words it is essential for the general growth of the plant.
(i) It leads to both land and air pollutions which affects agriculture production
(ii) Industries are located on land which constitute a huge proportion of urban land
(i) It leads to development of town’s which reduces land available for agriculture purposes
(ii) It leads to more construction of buildings where large proportion of land is used instead
(i) High value of crops are grown
(ii) It makes tillage operation easier
(iii) It improves soil aeration for good root respiration
(i) Organic matter which is made from carbon helps to replenish soil nutrients
(ii) It provides carbon which is the major building block of all organic matter
(iii) It helps to purify the atmosphere and also maintain the atmospheric level of carbondioxide
Crop Improvement can be define as the process of transferring an inherited superiority from one domesticated animal to another of the same species
(i)To improve the quality of produce.
(ii)To increase crop yield.
(iii)To adapt crops to adverse climatic conditions.
(iv)To induce resistance to pests and diseases in crop plants.
(v)To conserve land. resources.
(i)Use of prepared beds.
(ii)Use of nylon bags.
(iii)Farm labour supply
Brooding in poultry is defined as the management of chicks from one day old to about 8 weeks of age, and it involves the provision of heat and other necessary care during chicks’ early growing period.
(i) It makes possible the mating of animals with great differences in size without injury to either of the animal.
(ii) It is helpful to inseminate the animals that refuse to stand or accept the male at the time of oestrum.
(iii) It helps in maintaining the accurate breeding and cawing records.
(iv) It increases the rate of conception
(i) Rotational grazing
(iii) Controlled stocking
(i) Always wear protective gear
(ii) Keep the beehive location near and tidy
(iii) Avoiding certain smells and strong perfume
(i) Treatment of sick animals with coccidiostat
(ii) Raising poultry on wire/raised cages
(iii) Prophylactic use of coccidiostat in feeds
(i) It helps in saving the feed and water.
(ii) It brings about uniformity of the stock.
(iii) It reduces the cost of production and increases the farmer’s profit.
(i) they are grazed by domestic livestock or wild animals.
(ii) Rangelands primarily native vegetation
(iii) Rangelands do not include forests lacking grazable understory vegetation.
(i) Completely drain water from pond
(ii) Remove any fish and other organisms
(iii) Remove debris / weed / silt accumulation
(iv) Expose pond bottom to dry
by direct contact
(i)loss of appetite.
(ii)Separation of infected animals
(i)It is cheap
(ii)Farm size are usually small
(i)Shortage of supply; This is because lowered prices can lead to a sudden rise in demand that many producers may find very hard to meet. Ultimately, it can lead to very high demand that causes an increase in prices.
(ii)Difficulty in measuring success; if the government were to make a report of its success in Agricultural production subsidies, it would be a different story. This is because it is hard to quantify the success of subsidies.
(iii)Higher taxes; the government raise funds to the farms and Agricultural production agency to use for subsidizing industries? Of course, by imposing higher taxes. So, it is the people who provide the means to enable the government to subsidize industries.
(iv)market cycle towards farm subsidies; Raising the income while prices are rising will eventually raise commercial and industrial costs, causing the final products to lose their competitiveness in the international market.
