Abstract

This study investigated managerial information needs of members of National Cotton Association of Nigeria (NACOTTAN) in Ogun state. The study was carried out in three selected zones with NACOTTAN presence namely; Ijaka-oke, Imala and Iwoye-ketu . A sample size of 88 respondents was used for the study. Data was collected through questionnaires and was analysed using descriptive statistics. Results reveal that the mean age of respondents was 50.5 years, while 51.2% of the respondents were above 50 years and 32.3% had no formal education. The major constraints affecting the association were insincerity of executives on accountability ( X =3.73), unstable market price of cotton ( X = 3.66) and low level of technology ( X = 3.50). Farmers’ educational status was significantly associated with managerial information needs (χ2=13.14, p=0.04) while, significant difference existed in respondents’ managerial information needs across selected zones (F=11.78, P=0.01). Study concluded that NACOTTAN members had high managerial information needs. Therefore the association members need to improve on their activities, for the association’s managerial information needs to be met.
