Urgessa Tilahun Bekabil, Amsalu Bedemo


This study attempts to examine the determinants of farmer’s participation in conservation agriculture in Guto Gidda and Sasigga districts of Oromia Regional National State in Ethiopia. Primary data for the study were collected from 142 farm households heads drawn from five kebeles of Sasiga district and four kebeles of Guto Gida district through structured questionnaire. Majority of respondent households perceive conservation agriculture as adaptation strategy to climate change. Out of the total respondents 91.55 percent were those households who perceive conservation agriculture as an adaptation strategy to climate change. Binary logit model was employed to examine farmer’s participation in conservation agriculture. Estimation result shows that education level of the household head, number of active family labour and main employment of the household head were significant variables in determining participation in conservation agriculture.
