Katsina state has large deposit of kaolin and asbestos and other needed minerals for good industrial take off.
Katsina is one of the few states in the country where crops are grown all the year round. Apart from farming during the rainy season, dry season farming is done along river banks and along the numerous dams built by the State and Federal Governments.
Due to it’s vast arable land, it is currently playing a leading role in commodity/food production namely: cotton, groundnut, millet, guinea corn, maize, rice, wheat and vegetables. Government’s encouragement and general incentives to both large and small scale as well as peasant farming over the year, has been quite commendable.
