Abstract:
This study assessed the extent of cassava production, evaluated its determinant factors and their coping strategies on the households in Amaro Woreda, Southern Ethiopia. Both primary and secondary data were used for the study. Primary data were collected from the sample of 100 respondents drawn from both 67 cassava producer and 33 non-producer households. Descriptive statistics and econometric model were employed for data analysis. The descriptive statistics result showed those socio-economic, institutional characteristics and the coping strategies of the sample households for facing challenges. These copping strategies were revealed as 20%, 16%, 15%, 14%, 14%, 14%, 11% and 9% were using post harvesting technologies, using selected varieties, adopting newly introduced technologies, improving farming systems, changing plating dates, using chemical fertilizers and other interrelated mechanisms were the selected coping strategies respectively. The study employed also econometric model (The Multiple Linear Regression model) for estimating the determinant factors of cassava production. The model result revealed that three explanatory variables were significantly influenced the cassava production such as age of the household heads, educational level, family size or members of the sample households at 5% probability level
