In fighting global food cries, Agricultural product processing and storage plays an important role in food and feed preservation for the continual survival of man. Through the development of modern storage facilities, food crop preservation becomes easy and simple to follow. Rice and oil palm is a selected few agricultural product that will be taken into consideration in the course of this work. The study was conducted in Obubra Local Government Area of Cross River State, Nigeria, Storage experimentations were done at Faculty of Agriculture and Forestry Multipurpose screen house. The study was conducted with the aim to look into processing procedures and find possible solutions to the problems facing the farmers and agricultural machine operators in Agric business. Low level of mechanisation was observed to be high in areas visited during the period of this research.
