Social Networking to Accessing Resources for Irrigation Farming among Farming Households

This study focused on the contributions of social networking in accessing resource for irrigation farming among farming households in north central Nigeria. Systematic random sampling was used to select 194 respondents from Oke-oyi and shonga (Kwara State) and Ejiba (Kogi State). Data were obtained using structured questionnaire. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Pearson Product Moment Correlations. The findings indicated that market information with the mean score of 2.75, was the most important contribution of social networking in accessing resource for irrigation farming while lack of input with mean score of 2.27 was the highest ranked constraint faced by the farmers using irrigation for crop production. The result of correlation analysis revealed that there was no significant relationship between the contributions of social networking in accessing resources for irrigation and the constraints faced by the farmers using irrigation for crop production. Based on this results, it is therefore recommended that there should be creation of awareness on various opportunities that are available for irrigation farmers participating in social networking.
