The climate in NIgeria supports the cultivation of certain food crop types in certain geographical locations. Groundnut production is mainly found in the northern part of the country while palm kernel which are harvested from palm trees and used for making palm oil are mostly found in the southern  part of Nigeria. For the states producing the most groundnuts in Nigeria, they include the states of the North West which include Katsina, Kano, Sokoto, Kebbi, Jigawa and also states of the North Eastern region made up of Gombe, Adamawa, Taraba and Yobe. Some North Central states also produce this crop.

For states producing the highest amount of palm kernel, they include the states of the South Eastern Region. These states consist of Imo, Anambra, Enugu, Abia, and Ebonyi. Others include Akwa Ibom State.
