A farm record is a document (in most cases a book) that is used to keep account of different activities, events, materials etc. regarding the farm operations. Most Nigerian and African farmers don’t keep farm records and accounts, so they have poor farm management. Mainly, it is influenced by the fact that most of the farmers in Nigeria are illiterates and can hardly read or write.
