ABSTRACT

A stratified random sampling method was used to stratify the city into two strata. It was followed by the random selection of two Local Government Areas from each of the two strata. One hundred and ninety-eight urban producers of high - value horticultural crops were selected from the two LGAs based on probability proportionate to size. Data on socioeconomic characteristics, household stock of assets and agricultural productive activities were collected with structured questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, principal component and Tobit regression. Results showed that household size, gender,· dependency ratio, and access to credit and .distance to urban market significantly affected participation in urban farming.
