Kutoya Kusse, Gedion Ermias, Dawit Darcho

Increasing agricultural production and productivity require fostering the linkages between the agricultural and nonagricultural sectors that are growing in agriculture do not occur without non-agricultural sectors. The production and productivity of the major cereal crops in South Omo Zone is very low in relation to the land coverage due to poor agricultural technology utilization by the producers and low skill on-farm management practices. To solve these problems and increase production and productivity, strong farmers training centers and research extension system is important. The study was conducted in Debub Ari, Malle, Bena- Tsemay, Hammer, and Dasenech Districts of South Omo Zone. The major cereal crops grown in the area are maize, sorghum, teff, wheat, barley, and finger millet.
