O.B. Adeniji

This study aims at providing insight into the constraints inhibiting technology adoption behavior of cotton farmers in Katsina state, Nigeria. The samples comprise of 250 farmers selected from Malumfashi, Funtua and Daudawa in Katsina state Nigeria. Data collected from the respondents were analysed using descriptive statistics. The results show that the major constraints facing farmers as identified by about 80% are lack of fertilizer, frequency of spray, market opportunities. Others are inadequate knowledge of the production packages and non availability of these technologies. Given the result, it was concluded that cotton production in the study area is affected by lots of constraints. It was suggested that drastic improvement on the conditions of farmers be made through efforts on the constraints identified.
