HSP Seminar no.127 Helping Small Farmers in Nigeria through Agricultural Cooperatives: Lessons from Japan Agricultural Cooperative Model

Agricultural cooperative known as JA in Japan is the citadel of small farmers’ livelihoods. For almost 60 years, JA was the driving force behind small farmer-supportive policy in Japan. The reverse is the case in Nigeria where agricultural cooperatives are not tailored towards organized support; thereby farmers are faced with production challenges not known to JA members. While there are emerging challenges for JA, its relevance remains undaunted in marketing, farm guidance, credit, insurance, and subsidy among others. The paper examines the need for adapting the JA agricultural cooperative model in Nigeria and the needed institutional contexts.
