Description The objective of the paper was to investigate macroeconomic policy and agricultural value chain in Nigeria. The period covered is 1981–2016. The analysis is based on the autoregressive distributed lag framework. A long-run equilibrium relationship was found among the variables used in the investigation. Government expenditure and broad money supply (the macroeconomic policy variables used) were found to have significant positive impact on the agricultural value chain. Energy was found to also have a direct statistically significant impact on agricultural value chain. Based on the results, it is recommended that there should be an enabling macroeconomic policy framework, which gives emphasis to improved budgetary allocation to the agricultural sector, increases money supply, and promotes agencies that can directly impact the level of finance to agricultural value chain related businesses in Nigeria. Above all, electricity supply should be enhanced.
