Agriculture is one of the most important traditional industries and the major occupation of people of Hausa land. Over 75% of the total population of Hausa people practice agriculture as their means of living and other daily needs. Although, apart from farming, almost all men and women traditionally engage in one form of business or the other, notably crafts that are available within their domain and which are often hereditary. The existence of farming as an occupational Hausa craft, make the economy of Hausaland to be buoyant. This paper aims at reviewing the relevance of farming in promoting the economy of Hausaland.
