Impact of Climate Variability on Barley (Hordeumvulgarel) Production, Farmers' Perception and Adaptation Strategies in Misha District Hadiya Zone, Southern Ethiopia

Abstract:

Climate variability poses threats to agriculture and natural resources across the world. Studies on the effect of climate variability on specific crops and farmers perception on the variability are necessary to make targeted and effective adaptation measures. Based on this reality, this study assessed impact of climate variability on barley production and farmers’ perception and adaption responses in Misha District. A households’ survey was carried for a total of 129 household heads to get primary data of farmers’ perception of climate variability and adaptation options practiced in the study area. Qualitative data collection was done through focus group discussion, key informant interviews, questionnaire and field observation from three kebelles. Historical temperature, rainfall and barley production data (1986-2019) were used to analyze the trend and variability of the min the study area. Coefficient of variation was used to determine variability of rainfall and temperature. Simple linear regression for trend analysis, correlation for relation determination and their association were tested by Chi-Square and ttest.
