Analysis of Nigeria’s Top 10 Agricultural Exports:

Nigeria’s top agricultural exports are varied and reflect the country’s diverse agricultural sector. Cocoa beans, sesamum seeds, cashew nuts, and other cut flowers are all important export crops. The increase in the export of ornamental flowers in Q3 is notable.

The astronomical increase in the export of shelled cashew nuts in Q2 is also worth noting. This may be due to several factors, including increased production, higher prices, or a shift in demand.

The decrease in the export of standard-quality cocoa beans in Q2 and Q3 is also notable. This may be due to some factors, including lower production, lower prices, or competition from other countries.

Overall, the data shows that Nigeria’s agricultural exports are growing and diversifying. This is a positive development for the country’s economy and food security.

 

Additionally, the data does not include exports of crude oil and natural gas. The data is for the first three quarters of the year only. The data is subject to revision.
