ABSTRACT

Agricultural exports sector has been declining due to poor access to credit facilitiesat pre-shipment and post shipment stages as opposed to what is happening in other countries of the world.  This may be attributed to the banking sector not clearly identifying their major functions in boosting agricultural sector.Against this background, this study examined the role of banking sector in the development of agricultural export in Nigeria. The specific objectives were to: (i)to examine the contribution of banking sector to the development of agricultural exports in Nigeria; (ii) assess the impact of increased cost arising from exchange rate fluctuation on agricultural exports in Nigeria; (iii) evaluate the impact of interest rate on loans granted to the Agricultural sector in Nigeria. Ex-post facto research design was used and data of banking sector GDP, exchange rate, interest rate and agricultural exports from period of 2005-2015 were used. The study used descriptive statistics, pairwise correlation and generalised least square technique to analyse the secondary data extracted from NBS, Nigeria statistical bulletin among others for the period of 2005 to 2015. The study revealed that (i)banks does not provide adequate fund to the farmers needed for the production of Agricultural goods, (ii) fluctuation in the exchange rate allows the agriculturists to export agricultural products. (iii) interest rate has  significant influence on agricultural exports in Nigeria. The study therefore recommended that government should provide incentives and enabling environment that aid the activities of agricultural exporters, intervene in the level of interest rate given to agriculturists or investors from banks, government should ensure pre and post shipment finance in local currency through rediscounting facility and exchange rate should be stabilised.
