This paper aimed at providing hypothetical analyses of the preceding assertion that Nigeria, like many countries within the semi-arid regions of Africa, has been beset by several climatic anomalies during the last century. In particular, the weather variations experienced since the late 1960s through early 1970s to date have impacted on various environmental processes and human activities like Agriculture. Based on this, the study recommended among others that: farmers should be encouraged to adopt new farming approaches such as mushroom farming, planting of more fruit tree orchards and the use of improved varieties.
