The trends in the types of crops produced clearly show a shift from traditional crops to modern or exotic crops with Zea mays (maize), Phaseolus vulgaris (beans), Solanum lycopersicum (tomatoes) and Brassica oleracea (kales) increasing in area under production over the years while Vigna unguiculata (cowpea), Lablab purpureus (dolichos), Dioscorea (yams), Eleusine coracana
(finger millet), Manihot esculenta (cassava), Ipomoea batatas (sweetpotatoes), Maranta arundinacea (arrowroots), Helianthus (sunflower) and Gossypium (cotton) were diminishing over the past two decades.
