000246114 520__ $$aGiven the specific geographic and spatial location of rural
areas in developing countries, to bring agrochemical to
the rural farming households, it is argued, may have to come
at a cost over and above the normal price it is sold in market.
To this end, this work focuses on the willingness of rural
farming households to pay more than the mean average
regional retail price for agrochemicals in Kwara state, North
Central Nigeria. Questionnaire was administered to 100
randomly sampled in the two agricultural development zones
(ADP) in the study area. Descriptive statistics and the Logistic
Binary Regression model were fitted to examine factors that
influence respondents’ decision to pay more than the prevailing
average prices for access to agrochemicals in the study area.
Findings indicated a high level of awareness of agrochemical
use and modal responses to quantities used include: fertilizers
(41-50Kg/ha), herbicides (<10liters/ha), and pesticides
(<10liters/ha) on the cultivation of yam, cassava and maize,
which were the dominant arable crops in the study area.
About 90% of the respondents purchase agrochemicals from
their personal savings and less than 10% of the respondents
got their agrochemicals from other sources (governmental,
developmental agencies, ADP and farmers’ cooperative). Furthermore,
88% (p<0.01) of the respondents indicate willingness
to pay more than the current average price to have access to
agrochemicals and the logistic regression reveals that level of
education (P<0.01), had a positive relationship with respondents’
to willingness to pay more for agrochemicals in the study
area. Recommendations were made towards encouraging expanded
use of agrochemicals throughenhanced marketing
strategies that will facilitate contact of marketing agents to
prospective customers located in the rural communities.
