Title: Market Performance and Determinants of Marketed Surplus of Tef in Bacho Woreda of South West Shewa Zone, Oromia National Regional State
Author: Girma, Alemu; Dr. Endrias, Geta
Abstract: This study was aimed at analyzing the performance and determinants of marketed surplus of tef in Bacho Woreda of Oromia region. The woreda is unique due to water logging nature of vertisol which is more suitable for tef production than any other crops and all farmers produce tef as cash crop in the area. This study was initiated with the specific objectives of identifying market channels of tef, evaluating the performance of tef markets and identifying the determinants of marketed surplus of tef in the study area. The data were collected from both primary and secondary sources. The primary data for this study were collected from 120 farmers, 58 traders, 2 brokers and 20 consumers through application of appropriate procedures. Producers of tef are faced with lack of market information, high production cost, lack of appropriate extension and credit services and lack of technologies like row maker for sowing, weeding, harvesting and threshing. In tef market, traders’ operating expense is much higher than that of producers but traders’ profit share is nearly about 90.55 percent of the total profits. The result of the multiple linear regression model indicated that sex of the household head, land allocated for tef, market information and frequency of contact with extension agents on tef production to marketing had significant effect on volume of tef marketed in the study area. Thus, the government and concerned stockholders should give due attention to these variables in the study area to boost production and thereby increase marketed surplus of tef.
