The International Food Policy Research Institute (IFPRI) and its Nigeria Strategy Support Program (NSSP) is pleased to announce the publication of a new Working Paper titled “Assessing the state of the rice milling sector in Nigeria: The role of policy for growth and modernization”. The authors use an industry profit maximization model to conduct an ex-post impact assessment on the extent the rice milling sector in Nigeria has grown and improved its performance in producing high quality premium rice following major public sector interventions made under the Agricultural Transformation Agenda. The find that the government has been successful in expanding quality paddy production and milling capacity in the country along with an increase in capacity utilization in the medium and large-scale milling sub-sectors. As a result, the production of premium quality rice has increased by approximately 0.5 million metric tons between the two periods. Despite these gains, the industry did not see any overall increase in employment in the medium and large-scale sub-sectors.
