The evolution of agricultural sector in a developing country, such as Nigeria, is important, because it gives significant advantages to the economic growth. It contributes a lot to GDP, improve the level of local employment and promote general development. 

In Nigeria almost all farmers in agricultural regions use pesticides. Some of them are banned on international market especially in the European Union. The lack of education in pesticides sphere and established way of agriculture led to negative consequences for the farmers, environment and land productivity. 

The most widely used tools for agrochemicals application are knapsack sprayer, spinning disc sprayer, mist blower and others. A lot of farmers in Nigeria neglect the safety period between using pesticides and harvesting. It leads to dangerous conditions for the consumption of harvested crops. That’s why it is necessary to organize a special educational campaign to secure the farmers and local consumers.

The government regulations need to be upgraded accordingly to the current situation with banned pesticides in EU and world market. Since 2008 Nigeria made significant amendments in law system, but there are a lot of gaps between the rules and the real situation on the market.
