Abstract:
This study was designed to identify obstacles to the adoption of soil survey information in Abia and Imo States of Southeastern Nigeria. A structured interview schedule was used in obtaining information from 450 respondents. Data were analysed using percentages, multiple regression and factor analysis. Results showed that age (t = 2.21), education (t = 2.00) and years of farming experience (t = 2.06) were significant in influencing the adoption of soil survey information. The major factors affecting adoption of soil survey information were management and economic and technical and structural.
