Modernizing tomato production in Nigeria

Friday 20:55 GMT

Tomato farmers in northern Nigeria are losing over 40 percent of their yield due to poor storage and processing facilities.

With its annual production of 1.8 million metric tonnes of tomatoes Nigeria falls short of domestic demand for 2.4 million metric tonnes per annum. Some private companies have started setting up tomato processing plants, but they have yet to make any real impact.
