ABSTRACT 

This project was designed to compare the adop' 'en of ii pi eyed cecoyani production technologies in Ikwuano and Umuahia North L.G.A.s of Abia State. The respondents comprised of 120 farmers (60 faimers from each L.G.A.) who were randomly selected from tli. study areas. Means, percentages, ranking, t-test and Pearson correfi 'on cool ficierit were used to analyze the data collected. Eighty tive perrent of [lie farmers from Ikwuano L.G.A. compared with hundred percent of farmers from Umuahia North LG.A. were aware of Xanthosorna esculejiLi (30-GOgrams). Seventy three percent of farmers from Ikwuano L.G.A compared with about sixty seven percent of the farmers from Umuahia North L.G/\ were aware of cocoyam miniset technique Seventy percent t fariiic;s from ikwuano L.G A. compared with about sixty [In cc peed it jt Lu n tots North L.G.A. were aware of the use of herbicide. All [he respondents.


both L.G.As indicated that the other improved cocoyam production

technologies under study were disseminated i them. There was no

significant difference between [lie rate of adopl.ion of improved cocoyatu

production technologies by fanner ii ilwLIOno oil Unmoliia Nor iii L GAs.

excepting the difference between their rate ol adoption of Xai itt-rosorna

sagittifoliLim "Ede Uhie" (30-60gm) as improved planting material, correct

Spacings (25cm x 25cm and 50cm on im ridge), and right time of planting

(April, June, July).

Extension contact, total farm size and member 5! !p ol cooperati\Ie society

were found to be significantly correlated with far iers' level of adoption of

improved cocoyam production technologies in Ikwuano L.G.A. In

cotilparison, only cxtensioii contact was [our id to uc sigi iblicantly correlated

with farmers' level, of adoption of improved cocoyarn production

technologies in Umuahia North L.G.A. Lack of fund, scarcity of inputs,

scarcity of and, very tedious procedure and no knowledge about the

technique were dci tilled as ii re cot istraints u [he adoption of die

improved cecoyam production technologies by fanner':; in the L.G.A.s

under study. Lack of fund, scarcity of inputs and scarcity of land were

more o pressing problems to farmers in Ikwuano L.G.A. than their

counterparts in Urnuahia North L .C.A. Althougi 110 knowledge about the

technique was the least in ranking, farmers frur ii Umuahia North L.G.A

regarded it as a more serious problem compared with farmers from

Ikwuano L.G. A.
