Millet the Promising Crop of the Climate Change

A.B. Mustapha


Climate has been causing serious environmental hazards ranging from low soil water, erosion, droughts, and high temperatures in agrarian rain fed areas Nigeria which the resource poor farmers are not able to cope with as a result of poverty and low technological development. It is projected that crop yield in this area may fall by 10-20% by 2050 or even up to 50% due to climate change. Large potential productivity gains are possible in this zone, given the soils, crops and climates that are favourable. Simple rain water-harvesting technique can be useful to bridge short dry spells if supported with the crops that are more adapted to the condition.
