Nigeria's tomato farmers squeezed by low prices

A lack of capital, storage facilities and low margins are making it increasingly difficult for farmers to turn a profit.

    The tomato season is coming to an end in Kura but this year, the harvest has been poor and the market price of tomatoes has crashed.

    Lack of capital, a scarcity of storage facilities and poor pricing are gradually killing agriculture across the country.

    As farmers reduce their prices to beat their competition, they face slimmer and slimmer margins.
