The Economy of Nigeria Prior to the Oil Boom Era (Agrarian Economy) Prior to oil discovery in 1956, agriculture was the mainstay of the Nigerian economy, which made her famous across the globe. Before the discovery of crude oil in commercial amounts, agriculture contributed significantly to the Nigerian economy. However, the production levels of farm produce declined between the years 1970 and 1980. As a result, the exports reduced to such an extent that there was then a need to import to meet the food demand. Secondary data on planned capital expenditure allocation to the agriculture sector before and during the oilboom period; and the budget estimates of capital expenditure allocations to the Agriculture, Water Resources, Health, Education and Defence sectors in Nigeria during the oil boom period 1977-1983 were sourced and used. Before the oil-boom, the economy was characterised by the predominance of subsistence and commercial activities; narrow disarticulated produc tion base, with ill-adapted technology; neglected informal sector; lopsided development due to the bias of public policies; openness and excessive dependence on external factor inputs; continuous siphoning of surpluses from the economy; and weak institutional capabilities.

Decline in agricultural production in Nigeria began with the advent of the petroleum boom in the early 1970s. The boom in the oil sector brought about a distortion of the labor market. The distortion in turn produced adverse effects on the production levels of both food and cash crops.
