Świadomość dotycząca prywatnych usług w dziedzinie doradztwa rolniczego oraz popyt na nie wśród właścicieli małych gospodarstw rolnych w Nigerii

AWARENESS OF AND DEMAND FOR PRIVATE AGRICULTURAL EXTENSION SERVICES AMONG SMALL-SCALE FARMERS IN NIGERIA

Abstract:

This study investigated the awareness of and demand for private agricultural extension services among smallscale farmers in Nigeria, using farmers in Oyo state as a case study. Specifically, the study examined the availability and operations of private agricultural extension services and factors that determine farmers’ willingness to pay for such services. The results showed that a considerable number of farmers are willing to pay for private agricultural extension services. The number of plots cultivated by the farmers was found to influence farmers’ willingness to pay for private agricultural extension services at one percent level of significance. Income, awareness, family size and total number of plots were identified as the major factors influencing the use of private agricultural extension services in the study area. The study recommended the need for the government to mobilize farm households to avail themselves of benefits of private extension services. Efforts should also be stepped up by all development stake-holders to provide additional sources of income for farm households, in order to raise their income and demand capabilities.

Streszczenie w języku polskim:

W niniejszym artykule przedstawiono badanie poziomu świadomości dotyczącej prywatnych usług w dziedzinie doradztwa rolniczego oraz popytu na nie wśród właścicieli małych gospodarstw rolnych w Nigerii. Badaną grupę stanowili rolnicy zamieszkujący stan Oyo. Szczególnie skupiono się na dostępności i funkcjonowaniu prywatnych usług w dziedzinie doradztwa rolniczego oraz na czynnikach, które wpływają na skłonność rolników do zapłaty za tego typu usługi. Wykazano, że znaczna liczba rolników jest skłonna zapłacić za prywatne usługi z zakresu doradztwa rolniczego. Okazało się, że na skłonność rolników do zapłaty wpływała liczba uprawianych działek ziemi, przy istotności na poziomie 1%. Dochód, poziom świadomo- ści, wielkość rodziny i całkowitą liczbę działek uznano za główne ograniczenia w korzystaniu z prywatnych usług w dziedzinie doradztwa rolniczego na badanym obszarze. W artykule wskazano na konieczność zachęcenia gospodarstw rolnych przez rząd do skorzystania z prywatnych usług w dziedzinie doradztwa rolniczego. Także udziałowcy powinni podjąć kroki w celu zapewnienia dodatkowych źródeł utrzymania gospodarstwom, by zwiększyć ich dochód oraz popyt na usługi.
