Abstract
This research focused on the assessment of budgetary allocation to the agricultural sector and it effect on agricultural
output in Rivers state, between (1999-2010). The research only utilized secondary data generated by the Rivers
state government of Nigeria through the ministry of agriculture. The objectives of the research was to examine the
agricultural output of some selected crops such as cassava, yam, oil palm and plantain, and to examine the
relationship between the budgetary allocation to the agricultural sector and the various output mentioned above as
well as investigate the entire budgetary allocation to agricultural sector for a period of 12 years. Simple regression,
percentages, and tables, were used as analytical techniques. The coefficient of determination,[R2
] showed a very poor
relationship between budgetary allocation to agricultural sector and output, meaning R2
, was not significant for the
four different equations. This is because allocation to agricultural sector was miss-applied.
