effects of land tenure system on agricultural production
LAND TENURE SYSTEM AFFECTS ON AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION
WAY IN WHICH LAND TENURE SYSTEM AFFECTS AGRICULTURAL PRODUCTION
May lead to fragmentation of land which cannot be mechanized.
Correct ownership of some plots of land cannot be determined.
(iii) Land cannot be used as collateral for loans in some tenure systems.
(iv) Large scale farming cannot be practiced on small scattered farm holdings
(v) Strangers are prevented from owning land; hence they cannot come to develop the land.
(vi) Because of the short tenancy period in some systems, permanent land improvement programmes cannot be carried out by holders.
(vii) There is often restriction on the type of crops (e.g. permanent crops) that can be grown on the land in some systems.
(viii) Some land owners may not have the intention of farming while those willing to farm cannot own land because of the tenure system.
(ix) Some land owners exploit those without land by unfavourable tenancy conditions.
(x) Production is very high on land acquired by purchasing or freehold because land improvement can be carried out.
(xi) Land Use Act/Decree (of 1978 in Nigeria) made more land available to farmers for large Scale production
(xii) Acquisition of land through freehold is expensive, thereby discouraging agricultural investors.
