  The study was carried out to assess the energy consumption pattern in households in Osogbo Local Government Area of Osun State. Systematic random sampling was used to sample 120 households in the study sarea. The data used for the study were obtained with the use of well-structured questionnaires. Data analysis on personal characteristics, income level, availability of different energy source in the area and consumption pattern of energy by household were based on descriptive statistics. Regression model and Pearson correlation coefficient were used to test the relationship between personal characteristics of the respondents and consumption pattern of energy, the relationship between the total income of the household and amount spent on energy, respectively. The finding revealed that 50% of the respondents were 55 years old on the average and about 40% had family size of 4 members. Most of the household heads (45%) had primary education. About 57% of the household earned 2,000 as their monthly income 35% of the household heads earned 4,000. Energy source available for use in the study area are firewood (75%), charcoal (13%) and saw dust (12%). Household size (Xh) and household total income (Xi) were significant variables to the consumption pattern of the respondents at p = 0.05. The amount spent on energy was quite significant to the total income of the households. Improvement of household purchasing power through the implementation of schemes that can increase the household`s income level would encourage them to use easily accessible and durable energy source.

  Maize Storage Technologies (MST) are diverse among farmers and these variations have economic implications, this study, therefore, examines the benefit of using various Storage Techniques (MST) in Kwara State. Multi-stage sampling technique was used to choose 8 local government areas from the four zones, five villages were selected from each LGA. One hundred and eighty eight maize farmers were selected using probability proportionate to number of farmers in each village as contained in the ADP household lists. Structured questionnaires covering socio economic characteristics, quantity of maize stored, types of storage, length of storage, cost and returns on the use of storage were administered to the maize farmers. Descriptive, budgetary, partial budget analysis and multinomial logit regression were used to analyse the data. Three maize storage techniques being used by the respondents were: Local Storage (LS), Semi Modern Storage (SMS) and Modern Storage(MS). Among maize farmers, 37.9, 20.7 and 10.6% used LS, SMS and MS, respectively, while 30.8% did not store their maize. The gross margin for using various storage technique were N8,345/t (LS), N11,135/t (SMS), N12,435/t (MS). The modern storage had the highest incremental gross margin (N8,135/t), compared with the control (i.e., no storage). The result from partial budgeting and marginal analysis shows that modern storage techniques is the best because it has the highest difference in gross margin and highest marginal rate of return. Multinomial logit model results reveal the odds of using different storage techniques by farmers. It could be seen that rise in transportation cost, labour cost and farmersí household size enhance the probability of using no storage. The probability of using local storage is enhanced by farmerís age, semi modern is likely influenced by quantity of maize stored, while the probability of using modern storage is increased by years of experience, educational level of the farmers and quantity of maize stored by the farmer. Modern storage technology usage, improvement in literacy level and large quantity of maize stored would enhance farmersí income.

  Yam flakes serve as important calories food item in Nigeria. They are cheap stable foodstuff for all categories of people. Therefore, it becomes imperative to study the processing of yam into flakes. The main objective of the study, is to determine the economics of yam flakes processing in some selected villages of the study area. Data were collected from 187 respondents with a well structured questionnaire. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the information obtained from the respondents. Statistical analysis performed revealed that year of experience in processing was significantly related to revenue obtained (R2 = 0.569). It also shows that the resources such as total input of yam tubers (kg), total labour input (mandays) and value of firewood in naira were over utilized, the study revealed that the enterprise is profitable since the average gross margin and net returned were positive.

  The study examined how advertising and sales promotions affect the demand for dairy products in Lagos metropolis. The multistage sampling procedure was used in selecting 60 respondents who consume milk and milk products. Purposive sampling procedure was used to select three producers of milk as well as 10 marketers of milk. The 60 consumers were drawn from 5 local governments in the State. Well structured questionnaires were used to obtain data from the respondents. Two sets of data were collected and used in the study. Analysis of the data was done using descriptive analysis and regression analysis as well as student t-test were used. The result showed that radio (0.280) and billboard (10.392) as media of advertisement and sales promotion had positive and significant relationship with dairy product consumption while newspaper (-3.036) and exhibition/display (-1.973) had negative but significant relationship with dairy product. Majority of the consumers (48.3%) agreed that adverts and sales promotion create awareness of products which conform with the result of the regression analysis that confirm a significant relationship between sales promotion/advertisement media and consumers demands.
