Delta State is one of the major oil producing states in Nigeria and is situated in the region known as the Niger Delta. It is generally low-lying and has three seaports, namely Warri, Sapele and Koko.
The main oil producing areas are Warri North and South, Burutu, Isoko North and South, Ughelli North and South, Okpe, Ethiope East and West, Sapele and Ndokwa East and West.
Assistance is given by state government to farmers in the areas of fishery, agriculture, forestry, veterinary services, produce planning and research.
The state government has invested heavily in the fishery industry due to the natural resources which Delta State is blessed with. Fresh fish, crabs, shrimps and dried fish abound in almost all areas.
Delta State is also rich in major tubers and root crops such as cassava, coco yams, yam and potatoes.
Besides oil production, industries in the region include a glass factory at Ughelli, the African Timber and Plywood Factory in Sapele and Asaba Textile Mills.
