摘 要:

This study examined the adoption of herbicides by arable farmers in Edo State. It assessed the proportion of arable farmers using herbicides, level of use and factors affecting adoption of herbicides. Simple random sampling was used to compose a sample size of 556 respondents. Various descriptive and inferential statistics were employed in data analyses. The results showed that onehalf of the respondents used herbicides (27.9% regularly using herbicides), and most of the adopters used non-selective herbicide.Avalanche of factors, including education attainment, farm size and farming experience also affected the adoption of herbicides.
