Abstract: "Rice-Fish culture is an accepted farming system in Asia especially in Bangladesh, China, Philippines, Vietnam etc. Its practice in the West African region has assumed international recognition with the Regional Association for irrigation and Drainage, the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture and West African Rice Development Association and its two regional research consortia, the Inland Valley Consortium and the Regional Rice Research Network championing the campaign for the establishment of integrated irrigation aquacuiture (hA) in all the countries in West African Sub-region. A look at the irrigation system in Nigeria as shown by the activities of Ministry of Water Resources, the floodplains and the Lowland system, one will be fully convinced of the ability of this country to be self-sufficient in both rice and fish production through the adoption of integrated rice-fish culture in these systems."
