Briefly discuss four factors that cause food shortage in Nigeria

Poor storage and processing facilities: these facilities are inadequate, costly, scarce, and these reduce the quality and quantity of agricultural produce.                                                                                   
Lack of finance: farmers do not have access to loan, no collateral security, high interest rate etc. also result to low food production in Nigeria.                                                                                                                                        
Inadequate farm input: farm inputs are also scarce, inadequate, expensive and most farmers lack the technical know-how hence low agricultural productivity                                                                                                                 
Poor transportation network: most farms are not easily accessible, roads are bad, lack of vehicles, and high cost of transportation hinder agricultural development thereby causing food shortage.
