Jabulani Nyengere [2]


Abstract: There is increased number of organizations bringing awareness on climate smart agriculture (CSA) technologies to farmers. In Malawi, the increased numbers are due to impacts farmers are facing as a result of climate change hence making adoption of (CSA) technology being the best alternative to mitigate the impacts. The study aimed at identifying socio-economic variables that affect farmers decision to adopt use of organic manure as (CSA) technology. Data was collected using a semi-structured questionnaire through personal interview which targeted 120 households which were randomly selected composed of 30 % (n=37) males and 69 % (n=83) females. Data was analyzed using SPSS and STATA. The results showed that education, household size and income were significant at 0.05 level of significance. Since education, total annual income and size of the household were said to influence use of organic manure then they deserve particular attention in developing plans and implementation of this CSA technology.
