dc.description.abstractThis study assessed Agricultural Extension Services delivery to cotton farmer in Oyo State, Nigeria. Questionnaire was used to elicit information from one hundred and thirty-two (132) respondents randomly selected for the study. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were employed for the study. Results revealed that majority of the cotton farmers were male (53.8%), married (78.8%), had farming as primary occupation (76.5%), had farming experience of 1-5years (71.2%) and were in the productive age of 52yrs. The respondents were aware of the service delivery rendered by ADP. The major sources of information used by the cotton farmers were radio (97.0%) and extension agents (96.2%). The capacity building received by the cotton farmers include ‘Training on harvesting and how to remove cotton lint’ (x= 3.88). The result of Pearson-product moment correlation shows that farming experience (r =0.000, p= -0.031), and contact with extension agent (r = 0.000, p = 0.813) had positive significance with extension services received. Therefore, the study recommends that agricultural information on cotton production should be channeled through radio and followed up by extension agents due to the frequency of usage among farmers.en_US
