Author: Haba, Sharon
Abstract: This study was designed to identify the factors influencing the willingness to pay for agricultural information delivery technologies among the farmers in the Abahuzamugambi Coffee Growers Cooperative located in Butare , Rwanda . Three hundred and six farmers responded to a questionnaire that included questions about their demographic characteristics and accessibility to agricultural information technologies . Results were computed using the mean and standard deviation . T -tests and analysis of variance were conducted to determine the relationship between farmers ? ? demographic characteristics and their willingness to pay for selected agricultural information delivery technologies . Findings indicate that there was a correlation between farmers ? ? willingness to pay for agricultural information delivery technologies and some of their demographic characteristics . The farmer -to -farmer delivery technology was the most preferred as reflected by the amount of money that farmers were willing to pay for it compared to expert visits , print , radio , and television . Therefore , this technology was considered to be the most compatible with farmers ? ? needs in general .
