Abstract

The study focused on the impact of petroleum industrial degradation on agricultural produce in Ilaje Local Government of Ondo state. Four research questions were developed in conformity with the purpose of the study. The study adopted survey research design. Questionnaires were administered to elicit information on crop productivity, livestock productivity, forest and aquatic organisms and therefore the strategies to cope with the impact of petroleum industrial degradation. A total of 150 questionnaires were administered using stratified random sampling technique and analyzed using tables and percentages. The Cronbach Alpha reliability method was used to determine the internal consistency of the items. The findings from the study revealed that Petroleum Industrial degradation has impacted negatively on crop productivity, livestock productivity, forest and aquatic organisms and therefore the strategies to cope with the impact of petroleum industrial degradation on agriculture are trapping of gases, prevention of oil spillage or quick attention to oil spillage breakout, planning of community settlements away from oil wells, supply of nontoxic chemicals, help farmers to clear special land area for those involved in crop, and on land livestock farming, securing of important forest trees for use by communities or returns to be paid to farmers by oil drillers where their removal is unavoidable to accommodate oil wells. The study therefore recommended among others that community leaders should seek ways to compel the Federal government and oil companies to devote more resources to tackle environmental degradation.
