ABSTRACT

This study assessed the extension service delivery on the value chain of plants in product in Ekiti State, Nigeria. It specifically examined the socio-economic characteristics of plantain farmers, marketers and consumers in the study area, the factors that determine the price of plantain in the study area, examined the factors that boost the demand for plantain product, analyze how the packaging of plantain product affects the marketing of its products and the constraints faced by the plantain farmers. Primary data for this study were collected through the use of a well structured questionnaire and interview process. A simple random sampling was used to select 70 respondents which include 30 producers (farmers), 20 marketers of plantain product and 20 consumers of plantain products. Data for the study was analyzed using descriptive statistics which includes cross tabulations, frequency tables, averages, percentages, mean and correlations. The results of analysis of socio-economic characteristics of respondents in the study area revealed that the mean age of the consumers of plantain product was 25.75; it was revealed that 75% of the respondents are single. Married women dominated plantain marketing with 95% of the respondents being female while only 5% of the respondents were male. Majority of the respondents 65% used open space as their selling points. In addition, the mean age of plantain farmers in the study area was 49.73; there is no adequate extension contact which brings about little or no knowledge about farm operations. This study also reveals that there are some certain problems faced by the farmers on the farm which in turn results to low productivity. The study therefore recommends that there should be effective extension workers supervision so that farmers can acquire adequate knowledge on the production of plantain through adequate training or organization of agricultural extension
