The Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives is the state government ministry, charged with the responsibility to plan, devise and implement the state policies on Agriculture and Cooperatives.
Since the state was founded in 1967,the agricultural sector in the state has evolved throughout several decades. At the time of the Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture's creation, the policy focus was on direct production by the state. For a variety of reasons, the legislative focus has shifted over time from direct production to creating a favorable climate for private sector investment. To manage certain sections of the Sector, a number of specialized agencies were established. The Lagos State Coconut Development Authority (LASCODA), the Agricultural Land Holding Authority (ALHA), the Lagos State Input Supply Authority (LAISA), and the Lagos State Agricultural Development Authority are among these organizations (LSADA).
