Abstract Share this page

The study examined the socio-economic factors that influence the adoption of ginger(Zingiber fficinale) farming Technologies in Samaru Zone of Kaduna State Agricultural Development Project (KADP). 150 farmers were purposefully selected at random for this study. Data were collected by means of questionnaires and analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics. The result revealed that the average age of the respondents was 35.5years, household size was 10 persons, farm size was 2.55hectares and years of farming experience constituted 15.5 years. The result also revealed that educational level and scale of farming influenced the adoption of ginger farming innovations at P ≤ 0.05. The major constraints to adoption of ginger farming innovations identified were inadequate credit/capital (43.30%) and poor prices (37.30%). It was concluded that the level of education attained by a farmer and his/her scale of farming ease the farmers’ ability to adopt improved ginger farming innovation hence a higher productivity level. It was recommended that Extension agents should gear their efforts towards adequate technology transfer to farmers and adequate provision of agricultural credit facilities and farm inputs to farmers at low interest rates and prices to enhance the adoption of farming technologies to boost their production capacities.
