Présentation
Poverty has remained to be one of the major development challenges in Ethiopia. This research investigates the impacts of agricultural technology adoption on poverty reduction in rural Ethiopia. To this end, boosting agricultural production and productivity through the adoption of modern agricultural technologies is the main solution. However, in most of the rural areas of Ethiopian farmers adoption rate is very low. As a result, the study focused on analyzing the determinants of adoption of agricultural technologies (such as organic and inorganic fertilizer, herbicide technology packages) and their implied impact on poverty reduction. The results of the study revealed that adopters of any technology packages used in the study have higher per adult food and total consumption per annum, and this confirms that adoption of agricultural technologies has a direct and significant impact on household’s consumption and on poverty reduction for the rural poor in Ethiopia.
