  The study examined the characteristics of Indigenous Knowledge Systems (IKS) influencing their utilization by rice farmers in Ekiti state of Nigeria. Two hundred and sixty-six rice farmers were selected through a multi-stage random sampling technique and data procured through the administration of a validated and structured interview schedule. Results obtained through correlation analysis revealed a positive association between IKS utilization and Affordability (r = 0.17, p≤0.05), Effectiveness (r = 0.08, p≤0.05), Communicability (r = 0.677, p≤0.01), Relative advantage (r = 0.368, p≤0.01) and Availability (r = 0.054, p≤0.01). However, a negative association was found between IKS utilization and Environmental-friendliness (r = -0.351, p≤0.01).

  Many developing countries Nigeria inclusive remain heavily dependent on agriculture for food production. However, the coping capacity of the peasant farmers that produce the bulk of the food for the teaming population of Nigeria is limited by both resources and lack of knowledge. Any effort that helps to reduce the vulnerability of this sector to climate related risks is likely to result in considerable economic and social benefits for the entire population. This study investigated the cropping techniques adapted by farmers to mitigate risks associated with seasonal climate change in Oyo state. Shifting planting dates, changing crop varieties and other cultural practices were among the various techniques used to cope with seasonal climate change by farmers. The study therefore recommended that deliberate efforts be taken to first document what farmers are doing and work towards their improvement. Hence, the need for extension to develop an integrated programme that includes strategies which are technically sound and affordable.
