Maize farming, as a business, has long been neglected in Nigeria due to ignorance of its dynamics and lack of awareness despite her rich soil and good weather. Maize planting was, therefore, relegated to only peasant farmers. This situation had adverse consequences on her food security and economy. Considering the crucial importance of food security in the global community, artists are indispensable. The paper examined the role of textile designers in agricultural development using textile designs as a means of educating farmers, awareness creation and in general, advertising. Maize which is called “Queen of the Cereal” is one of the important foods, green forage and industrial crop of the world. The case study was carried out through primary and secondary sources of information. The primary source consisted of oral interviews of farmers and participant observation, while secondary source was library studies. The result showed that ignorance and finance are two extreme factors militating against maize production in the state. Whereas in some developed countries, radio and television are the current means of advertising and awareness creation, but in our own environment, textile design has effectively done the same work in advertisement and awareness creation relative to modern maize production. Government, through her agencies should do well to incorporate the textile sector in her program with a view to maximize the benefits of the exercise. Relevant stakeholders, such as the nation’s textile industry need encouragement for their roles in nation building.
