Economic analysis of risks in fruit and vegetable farming in Osun state, Nigeria.
Ending extreme poverty and hunger will be difficult without more investment and more innovative approaches. The outbreak of COVID has rapidly spread across the world, profoundly disrupting the fundamental activities that bring the global community together, including agriculture — and endangering all those who depend on it as their livelihood. In a rapidly changing world, agriculture remains the heart of sustainable development. The International Fund for Agricultural Development IFAD is an international financial institution and a specialized agency of the United Nations dedicated to eradicating poverty and hunger in rural areas of developing countries. Nowhere is the challenge of leaving no one behind more salient than in rural areas.

Metrics details. Unhealthy foods and tobacco remain the leading causes of non-communicable disease NCDs. These are key agricultural commodities for many countries, and NCD prevention policy needs to consider how to influence production towards healthier options. There has been little scholarship to bridge the agriculture with the public health literature that seeks to address the supply of healthy commodities. This scoping review synthesizes the literature on government agricultural policy and production in order to 1 present a typology of policies used to influence agricultural production, 2 to provide a preliminary overview of the ways that impact is assessed in this literature, and 3 to bring this literature into conversation with the literature on food and tobacco supply. This review analyzes the literature on government agricultural policy and production. Articles written in English and published between January and April year range were included.
Association with Environmental Degradation. Although the climate in many regions of Africa is advantageous for growing a variety of fruits, the vast majority of it is consumed locally; only about five percent is exported. Key types of fruit and nuts exported are coconuts, cashews, citrus, grapes, pineapples, mangoes, apples, pears, fresh berries, and bananas. Production features of export fruit crops depends on the species in production. Coconuts, one of the top exported products, are produced for export primarily in Ghana and Tanzania. In Ghana, about 80 percent of coconuts were produced by smallholder farmers. Citrus for export is primarily produced in South Africa where it is grown on relatively large commercial farms.
A cash crop or profit crop is an agricultural crop which is grown to sell for profit. It is typically purchased by parties separate from a farm. The term is used to differentiate marketed crops from subsistence crops , which are those fed to the producer's own livestock or grown as food for the producer's family. In earlier times cash crops were usually only a small but vital part of a farm's total yield, while today, especially in developed countries and among smallholders almost all crops are mainly grown for revenue. In the least developed countries , cash crops are usually crops which attract demand in more developed nations, and hence have some export value.
