Farm scheme can be seen as a method of advancing rural development in a rapid speed by the effort of the government. Farm settlement scheme can also be described as an intervention of the government to promote efficient utilization of land resources and dignity in farming by the provision of basic social needs. In Nigeria, this type of settlement scheme has been in operation since the 1950’s. Each of the three Geo-political zones i.e. the Hausa’s, the Igbo’s and the Yoruba’s had its own system of operation with respect to the prevailing religious and cultural atmosphere of such a place. Improvement of farming methods by farmers for the market as well as transforming subsistent agriculture into small scale commercial farming were the driving force. In this project spatial arrangement and rearrangement of farm plots or resettlement of population by the locals together with government intervention, supervision and intensive agricultural guidance through the appointment of extension agents and dispersal into such regions make for effective campaign or project exercise.
