Education and farmers' motivation: the case of the five villages in Zaria area of Kaduna State


, : Education and farmers' motivation: the case of the five villages in Zaria area of Kaduna State. Journal of Rural Development and Administration 27(2): 1-12

The paper argues that education has an important role to play in motivating farmers'. It is hypothesized that those farmers who have one or two types of education may have been exposed to and acquired new skills, knowledge and attitudes (defined as a state of readiness to be motivated to act toward a certain goal). The study was conducted in five villages in Zaria LGA (local government authority) of Kaduna State, Nigeria.
