Title:Education and development: an assessment of educational level and adoption behaviour of farmers in Nigeria
Author:Ogionwo, W.
Periodical:Quarterly Journal of Administration
Geographic term:Nigeria
agricultural development
Abstract:Focus is on the relationship between level of education and exposure to instrumental information among farmers and adoption of recommended farm practices. The working hypothesis in approaching the data was that, besides a necessary relationship between level of education and the reading of printed material, there will be greater tendency for more highly educated respondents to be in contact with sources of instrumental information and much greater adoption of farm practices. It seems reasonable to infer from the general propositions that if level of education enhances mass media, which in turn contributes to development, then level of education should also enhance exposure to instrumental information.
