Abstract
The revitalization of the ailing Nigeria agricultural sector through policy driven and result-oriented agricultural production practices; its drawbacks, repositioning, growth, development, specialization and production outputs from agribusiness perspectives forms the focal issues of discourse in this research work. Research outcome revealed three aggregate management decision tools that could be isolated from the respective identifiable operators within the agricultural production-market supply chain; the producer-cooperative, supplier-consumer, and processor-distributor, and each of them should be made to operate in tandem with the national economic growth policies in their internal decision making.
