This study examined the determinants of adoption of improved soybean seeds among farmers in southern Borno State, Nigeria. Data for the study were obtained from 360 respondents selected through multi-stage sampling procedure. Inferential statistical techniques namely the Logit model and the Tobit model were used to estimate the likelihood of technology adoption among respondents and the extent of adoption of improved soybean seeds by the respondents, respectively. Yield of soybean and distance…

Adoption pattern of fertiliser technology among farmers in the ecological zones of south-western Nigeria: a Tobit analysis
Tobit estimates show that farmers' fertiliser adoption decisions vary with agroecological location, and a decomposition of the elasticities calculated at the means of the variables revealed that Farmers' probability of adoption and non-adoption accounted for more of fertiliser technology response than did the use intensity, given adoption.
