RESOURCE USE AND EFFICIENCY AMONG FADAMA CROP FARMERS IN IBADAN/IBARAPA AGRICULTURAL ZONE OYO STATE, NIGERIA 

 

 

ABSTRACT

 

The study investigated the resource use efficiency among Fadama crop farmers in Ibadan

Ibarapa agricultural zone of Oyo state, Nigeria. Data were collected from 120 respondents who

were randomly selected and interviewed using both interview schedule and questionnaire. The

data collected were presented using percentage and means. The findings o revealed that there

was no significant difference in the productivity between Fadama and non fadama (soko)

farmers, while there was a significant difference between the productivity of Fadama and non

fadama (watermelon) farmers as well as Fadama and non fadama maize farmers.The gross

margin analysis of Fadama and non Fadama crop farmers revealed that Fadama soko farmers and

Fadama maize farmers were more profitable than the non Fadama farmers in the area. For

watermelon, the non fadama farmers were more profitable because they had higher output. The

findings also revealed that labour, fertilizer, insecticides and seed influenced the technical

efficiency of soko farmers. Herbicides and insecticides influenced the technical efficiency of

watermelon farmers, while labour, insecticide and seed influenced the technical efficiency of

maize farmers. The positive coefficient for age variable implies that the older farmers were more

technically inefficient than theyounger ones. Also negative coefficient for education implies that

the farmers level of technicalinefficiency declined with more education. With regards to farmerspecific

factors, especially education, there is the need for policyto promote formal education as

a means of enhancing efficiency in production over the long-term period. This is because it

would enable farmers make better technical decision and also help in allocatingtheir production

inputs effectively.

 

In the short-term, informal extension education could beeffective, especially

when targeted at farmers who have had limited formal educationalopportunities.The coefficient

of farming experience was estimated to be negative as expected andstatistically significant at the

5-percent level. The implication is that farmers with more years offarming experience tend to be

more efficient in crop production. It is possible that such farmers gained more years of

farmingexperience through “learning by doing,” and thereby becoming more efficient.The study

also found that farmers under Fadama harvested more per unit ofland of output of crop than

nonfadama farmers for soko and maizeand this confirms the hypothesis that programme

intervention has the capacity to succor farm production problems while accruing more income to

farmers.
