This project seeks to bring together existing state of knowledge and existing state of practice in agriculture sector new techniques have to be proven before they are adopted in the general practice.

          Chapter one of this project will deal with the statement of problems rationale of study significance of study and definition of terms.

Chapter two will examine in details the related literature to the project.

Chapter three will deal with statement of hypotheses methodology of study and sources of data.

          Chapter four will deal with presentation of data and analysis of data and also the discussion of results.  

Chapter five will deal with summary conclusion and suggestion

          Finally I hope that this project will be of benefit to agriculture sector the student of training and finance and other researchers in related topics.
