The Agriculture sector in Nigeria contributes about 25% of total GDP in Nigeria just behind the oil sector, it is clear that the agricultural sector offers a lot of opportunities for revenue generation and job creation in Nigeria.

There are increasingly hundreds of Nigerians with innovative solutions that can solve the problems that plague the sector despite efforts by the Federal Government to boost the sector. Better yields and improved produce quality are achievable through improved quality of agricultural inputs, as well as irrigation, timely harvesting, improved post-harvest management and quality control, and investment in storage facilities such as cold storage for perishables.

Nigeria CIC aims to support enterprises developing innovative agricultural technologies that make such changes possible, and which in turn improve the efficiency of small-scale farms and provide communities with access to better/cheaper foods.
