Of the total land area, 39 percent is utilized for cultivated crops, while another 3 percent supports permanent crops such as fruit- and nut-bearing trees.

CHALLENGES

Nigeria has long been faced with infrastructure and macroeconomic challenges but has undertaken several reforms over the past decade.

Environmental issues facing the country are soil degradation, rapid deforestation, desertification and oil, soil and water pollution.
