Lettuce is a leafy vegetable that is rich in vitamins and minerals but
it is also highly perishable with a short shelf life.
Nigerian consumption of the commodity is huge and growing, mainly for
its nutritive benefits.
However, Nigeria remains a fringe supplier of lettuce, with power supply
problems that make storage a major impediment.
Global output is approximately 27million tonnes and Nigeria hopes to
compete in vegetable cultivation and greenhouses in the near future.
In the link below, these and other issues were discussed on the Channels
