Farmers? Perception of the Effect of Climate Change on Crop Production In Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State, Nigeria

Ogunleye K. Y.


Abstract: The study was carried out to gain a better understanding of the effect of climate change on agricultural production in Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State. A simple random sampling procedure was used to sample respondents using the list of registered farmers obtained from the local government. The findings of the study revealed that 44.3 percent of the respondents were in the age range of 41-59 years which is the highest percentage compared to other age grouping in the study. Also, majority of the respondent (69.2 %) were males and 68.3percent were married with mean farm size of 0.82ha. Moreover, 61.7 % of the respondents perceived the effect of climate change in the study area as high. Farming experience (t=2.298, p<0.05) and farm size (t=2.129, p<0.05) had positive and significant relationship with constraints faced in managing the effect of climate change. The study concludes that the farmers are aware of the effect of climate change on crop production but face constraints in managing the effect. More training should be given to farmers by the extension personnels on best practices to manage climate change effect while the low level of education of the farmers be considered while organising training in order to make it effective since most of the farmers do not have formal education
