Osayanmon Wellington Osawe, 2018. Use of Modern Inputs and Complementary Farm Practices in the Nigeria Rice Value Chain: Implications for Policy. Feed the Future Innovation Lab for Food Security Policy Research Brief 74. East Lansing: Michigan State University

KEY FINDINGS:
• Significant share of rice farmers and processors in Nigeria still use technologies that do not allow for substantial improvement in average yield and on the quality of rice processed.
• Adoption of modern technology does not only improve rice yield; it also significantly lowers the overall cost of production.
• Improvement in rice yield and reduction in input cost tend to occur irrespective of the type of agroecological zone.
• Disparities in the price of domestic rice across Nigeria tend to be a function of the quality of rice sold which is largely determined by the type of processing technology employed.
