ABSTRACT
The project was designed to study facilities required for teaching Agricultural science in secondary schools in Ikere,Ise and Ado Local Government Areas of Ekiti State. Six research questions guided the study. The population comprised of ten (10) secondary school in local government areas i.e Ado, Ikere and Ise. The study was carried out with a well structured questionnaire copies of which were administered on agricultural science teachers in the schools. Data collected were analysed using single percentages. The following findings were made (1) The Facilities available for teaching agricultural science in the school include school farm, agricultural science laboratory, and qualified agricultural science teachers. In addition, relevant text book, field trips and farm practical were also used in teaching the subject. However the schools had problem of inadequate qualified agricultural science teachers, capital, land, farm implements and tools. It is support the rewarded that government should support the schools with found to be able to acquire the relevant facilities that are required for teaching agricultural science. Competent agricultural science should also be employed.
CHAPTER I
INTRODUCTION
Background of the Study
Agriculture is the first and most thriving occupation of mankind from its early form of wild fruits, leaf, root, snail and insect gathering, fishing and hunting to its present mechanized form.
Agriculture is derived from the Latin word “agar” meaning field and culture meaning cultivation. However, it is currently defined as the art and science of crop and animal husbandry for the benefit of mankind.
Adekojo (1998) defined agriculture as the cultivation and land for the purpose of producing food for man, feed for animal and fibre for raw materials. He further stated that, it include small scale industries connected with processing of agricultural products. Therefore agriculture embrace crop and animal production and processing. The meaning and importance of agriculture have not changed as the source of foods and fibre. But history science and skills of its performance have changed from place to place and from time to time.
Agriculture is important to the nation because it supplies country with wild range of food crops and food of animal origin. It provides income to the farmers and it also a source of foreign exchange earner, it provides food, clothing and shelter for man. It supplies raw materials for industries. It creates employment opportunities to the people in the country. Hence, there is need to plan facilities for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools.
Agriculture plays vital role in the Nigeria economy so the government of the country. Hence, there is need to plan facilities for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools.
Agriculture plays vital role in the Nigeria economy so the government of the country (Nigeria) attaches much priority to it. This is so as to provide food to it. This is so as to provide food to its increasing population. About 8% of Nigeria workers are engaged in farming. To the effect agriculture is encouraged in all secondary schools. Both the federal and the states government are devising means of improving the teaching of agriculture as a subject in schools and colleges
Olaitan (1984) recognized this fact. When he stated the objective of secondary schools agricultural science some of these objectives include
  1. To provide students with adequate skill for living and progressively advance in farming.
  2. To advance food production through improvement of agricultural production. It is therefore very necessary to motivate students interest in term of practical because the student are not interested with the practical aspect of agriculture.
It is of great importance to plan for the facilities required for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools.
Statement of the Problem
Facilities play significant role in teaching process. Different concepts are taught, they provide concrete experience to them. Also based on the foregoing is realize that facilities and learners to comprehend what the teacher teaches. They also make teachers’ lesson to be linely and make for concrete provision of learning experiences, therefore, the study will attempt to investigate and analyze the available facilities for teaching agricultural science in selected secondary schools.
Purpose of the Study
The main purpose of this study is determine the facilities required for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools in Ikere, Ise and Ado local Government areas, with the view of suggesting the best ways that can be used to promote the teaching of agricultural science,
Specifically, the study sought to identify;
  1. Facilities required for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools
  2. The availability of the facilities in the facilities in schools
  3. The use of the available facilities
  4. Factors affecting the availability and use of the facilities
  5. Problems with the availability and use of the facilities
  6. Suggesting of improving the availability and use of the facilities.

Significance of the Study
The aim of the study is to enhance the availability and the use of facilities in the schools.
Research Questions
The following are the research questions to be answered in the study
  1. What are the facilities required for teaching agricultural science in secondary schools.
  2. What are the available facilities in the schools
  3. How are the available resources being used?
  4. What are the factors affecting the availability and use of the facilities
  5. What are the problem with availability and use of the facilities
  6. What are ways of improving the availability and use of the facilities.
