Horticultural products export can play a vital role in securing foreign exchange for the country among other advantages. This has not been possible due to limited attention given to horticulture in the agricultural programmes of the country. This has led to limited contribution of horticulture to the domestic and external markets. The potentials of village level mobilization to revert this trend are discussed with the associated initiation and sustainable participation of Nigeria farmers in horticultural products exports. The clear cut differences in domestic and foreign markets for selected horticultural crops are itemized. Suggestions are also made to bridge the gaps in the shortfall. The need for the government of Nigeria to evolve a policy for encouraging horticultural products expert as a strategy for poverty alleviation is also presented.
