CHAPTER ONE

INTRODUCTION

1.1 Background of the Study

Agriculture is the art and science of growing plants and other crops and the raising of animals for food, other human needs, or economic gain (Ogieva, 2003). Agriculture contributes to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP), exports, generation of employment with high potentials to reduce poverty being the engine room for economic growth and improved livelihoods. According to FMARD (2011), protein requirement of 53gm per head per day is a World health Organization (WHO) recommendation for healthy growth which can largely be obtained from poultry products such as meat and egg. The 2008 Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO) data puts the total Nigerian poultry population at 175 million. In view of the importance of agriculture, the Nigeria government adopted the teaching and learning of the subject at all levels of education (FME, 2008). Agricultural science is therefore made one of the core vocational subjects taught at both junior and senior secondary schools.

Statement of the Problem

In Nigeria today, with the prosperity and diversity of job opportunities provided by agriculture in the country, youths from all parts of the country are leaving agriculture for trading and other businesses. One of the major problems facing Nigeria today is unemployment which is attributed to unfavourable disposition of the youth to agriculture. The primary aim of agricultural education according to Phipps (2008) is to train present and prospective farmers for proficiency in farming. The national curriculum for secondary school recommended that all secondary schools must keep a standard school farm where crops and at least one species of livestock from either pigs, rabbits, poultry, goats, sheep, cattle and fish production (FME,2008).
