In Nigeria today, hunger prevalence is on the rise and in paying attention to the country's food production level, the difficulty experienced in meeting domestic food needs and the challenge in exporting our local products, it is easy to conclude that Nigeria Is food insecure. The petroleum based economic model of the Nigerian economy has made it lose its force as an export led economy and as the government makes effort to diversify the economy towards achieving food security, it is important to learn about how technology can help achieve this objective. This paper reviews recent attempts by some Nigerian innovators to leverage technology to disrupt the food production and Agriculture sector and examines how public private partnership can foster holistic development in the sector. It is hoped that this study will inform agricultural development practitioner about how technology can end hunger and achieve food security in Nigeria.
