decade, the problems of national food nutrition and fibre crises have
been on the increase and the ghost chasing the economy is no longer a
figment of the imagination. The time has come for a definitive attack.
This paper examined the economics of promoting increased food production
through efficient inputs services and farm-rural infrastructures. The
basic agricultural inputs for modernized commercial production are land,
Labour, modern farm capital, water, climate, power and entrepreneurship,
while basic infrastructures that promote agricultural production include
rural, physical, social, institutional and farm facilities. These inputs
and infrastructures interact, thus have competitive, complimentary
supportive, joint effect and consequently; the economics of
inputs-infrastructures promotion raises quantitative, management,
organizational, institutional and costs return implications that merit
substantial research efforts in the context of the atomistic population
of small holder farmers in Nigeria. Although government may facilitates,
stimulates and promotes growth of Agriculture food production programme,
success must ultimately depend on the multitude of farm household. To
secure food security for the teaming population, various motivated
programmes (farm settlement) and the co-operationalized systems must be
updated. Hence Inputs-land, Labour, capital, power and entrepreneurship
must be earnest in a way to favour production and basic rural-farm
