Abstract

 

Raphia exploitation and utilization have yielded direct and immediate micro level benefits to economically disadvantaged rural communities in Nigeria. Raphia palm wine provides income to the tappers and marketers, and a source of raw material to dry gin producers besides its other uses. There is good evidence of the ability of smallholder farmers to be competitive in products such as Raphia palm wine production. Over the years, the level of the importance of Raphia palm wine as a resource to the rural communities was not fully appreciated. In order to tackle the problem of low exploitation and neglect of the RPW, the study attempted to examine the ability of Raphia palm wine production and sales to promote the income and sustainability of rural development in Nigeria.

Keywords: Raphia, palm, wine,sustainability, exploitation, income, production and competitive.
