Abstract on Influence of Information Sources on Farmers Knowledge and Usage of Poultry Drugs

A nation’s capacity for industrialization and employment depends on her improvement in level of production enhanced by available information. This is necessary for promoting entrepreneurship in agricultural transformation agenda for food security and poverty alleviation in Nigeria. This study assessed the influence of information source on poultry farmers knowledge and usage of drugs in Edo and Delta States, Nigeria. A multi-stage sampling procedure was used to solicit response from 120 and respondents from Edo and Delta States respectively with the aid of a well structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed using frequency counts, percentages and mean while the hypothesis was tested using chi-square analysis. Result showed that majority (64.1%) and (63.8%) of the poultry farmers in Edo and Delta States respectively, were males, with majority (52.3%) and (53.8%) of the respondents in Edo and Delta States respectively been married. The result further showed that poultry farmers preferred neigbhours and retailers (dealers) as part of their available sources of poultry drugs information sources which lead to a bit increase in the level of awareness about poultry drug usage. But the adoption of these practices was low when compared with their awareness; this was due to constrains in sourcing the poultry drugs. Respondents were not so knowledgeable in poultry drug usage (6.3%.44.5%) and (6.3%- 60.0%) in both states. There was a significant relationship between the respondents’ level of knowledge about poultry drug usage and their educational attainments, poultry farming experience poultry size, farmers’ membership of association and contact with extension agents. This study concludes that though some of the poultry drug information sources were available, they tend to increase the farmers’ level of awareness, but the adoption rates tend to reduce due to the constraints faced in souring and adopting this in terms of adoption of principles in drug usage.
