Institutional Analysis of Adoption of Agroforestry Innovations in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa. No. 2014-002

  • Written by  Mulatu F. Zerihun , Zeleke Worku and Mammo Muchie


Agroforestry (AF) innovations are induced innovations developed in response to address problems associated with unwise land use practices. AF practices are among land-based economic development strategies with a perceived positive role in prompting rural livelihoods. Using a logistic regression model in a cross-sectional data collected from a sample of 300 households, this study explores the impact of institutional factors and incentive mechanisms that affect the adoption of AF innovations. The study finds that higher frequency of extension services, access to credit, and access to extension, information exchange among farmers, trust in local institution, active participation in social groups and organizations, and prior exposure to agricultural technologies are the variables with higher odds ratios that positively affect the adoption of AF innovations in the study areas. These findings have policy implications in addressing integrated rural development in the Eastern Cape Province.
