Abstract: The study examined internal displacement and variation in crop production in Barkin Ladi Local Government Area of Plateau State. The method of random sampling technique was used to select two wards from each of the five districts in the area and a purposive sampling was used to select 160 representative farmers in the sampled area which were administered questionnaires. Data were collected and analyzed descriptively using tables, charts and Chi-square test. The study revealed that there is a significant difference in the quantity of crop production before and after displacement. Result indicated a level of decrease in quantity of crop production, which as a result of the number of hour’s farmers now spent on their farms, and also inadequate labour supply that is less than what was before the displacement. It shows that there’s a significant difference in the type of crops produce before and after displacement and the reason is mainly for security. The study concluded by highlighting the urgency of the need for the various stakeholders to act in curbing the menace if the goals of food security were to be achieved. Recommendations were made on the responsibility of government at the federal, state and local levels as well as private and traditional institutions which is to establish all-inclusive processes of dialoging with worrying parties.
