The study was a secondary data research in which I adopted multiple regression models as my tool of analysis. The OLS was the estimation technique. From the analysis, the following findings were made: Agricultural sector has a positive relationship with Economic growth as a unit increased in agricultural sector led to 0.9 units increase in economic growth of Nigeria. I also found out that economic growth and development of Nigeria is attributed to Agriculture. From these findings, the researcher made the following recommendations; efficient and equitable distribution of farm inputs by the government, provision of basic infrastructure and social amenities, advancing of loans to farmers at low or no interest rate, adoption of strategies that would attract young graduates to farming, engaging of more extension workers that will be under the direct supervision of the ministry of Agriculture so as to encourage growth and development of the sector and economy at large.
