Abstract


Agricultural incentives have long been recognized as a major factor in improving agricultural development. The major thrust of this research was to determine farmer's accessibility to incentives.
The study area was Egbedore Local Government Area of Osun State; interview schedule was used for data collection. A hundred and eleven (111) respondents were interviewed. Descriptive statistics was used to present the result and logit regression analysis was the analytical tools used.
The result shows that 75.7% of the respondents had access to incentive through informal source. It was found that 50.5% of the respondents had low access to incentives and 49.5% of the respondents had high access to incentives. Factors that significantly determined farmer's access to incentives were membership to farmer's association (t=3.609; p< 0.01) and primary occupation (t=-2.203; p < 0.05). The study recommends that farmers should belong to one farmers' group or the other so as to facilitate access to incentives and to facilitate identification of such farmer. Government and non-governmental organization should make effort to provide adequate incentives to the farmers.
