Project Goals:           To develop a simulation model that will be useful to policy makers of Nigeria who are concerned with meeting the nutritional needs of the population, generation of foreign exchange earnings and raw materials inputs for industrialization, and other important questions relating to long-run development of the agricultural sector and its interaction with non-agricultural development.

Project Summary: This project grew out of the agricultural sector studies conducted under the MSU CSNRD Project in Nigeria. The model generated was then applied to agricultural sector studies in Korea (see “Korean Agricultural Sector Study - KASS” and “Korean Agricultural Planning Project - KAPP”).
