RESEARCH BODY

ABSTRACT

Technological development practices that enhance and support entrepreneurship are essential because they cultivate innovation which, in turn, creates new jobs, new wealth, a better quality of life and sustainable development. The downward trend in Yewa North rural smallholder farmer’s income highlights the need to examine the effect of road and market infrastructure on their income. Specifically, the study proceeded to describe the socio-economic characteristics of the respondents in the study area; assess the condition of rural roads and market infrastructure as perceived by the respondents; identify the different means of transportation of agricultural produce in the study area; and determine the effect of road condition and market infrastructure on sales of agricultural produce in the study area.

A multistage random sampling was used to select 120farmers from the study area. Questionnaire and interview schedule were used to collect data from the respondents. The analytical techniques used are descriptive statistics, and regression analysis. The result revealed that a high percentage of the respondents are married (90.7%) and male (88.7%) respectively.

The regression result shows the coefficient of determination was 78.1%, implying that the independent variables explain at least 78.1% of the variability in dependent variable on effect of road condition of farming household in the study area. The regression estimate shows that, the coefficient of variable household size and Road condition were significant but assumed negative signs that neglected the a priori expectation. The coefficient of age, household size, Farm experience, Formal educational level significantly affect the farmers income The coefficient of road condition although significant, had negative effect on income made. This was as a result of high transportation cost incurred by the farmers. It is obvious that low quality roads impose costs on people living far from market. But for people facing very high transport costs arising from inadequate roads, markets cannot be accessed except at very high cost. Bad roads are clearly an obstacle to attaining the potential benefits from market-based economic reform. Hence, communities can come together or communal effort can be applied to develop their areas. In addition to this, local government areas should be empowered to develop their localities by maintaining the existing roads as well as opening new ones to facilitate easier movement of farm produce to the markets at a reduced cost.
