Abstract:
This study tries to analyze the determinants of ginger (Zingiber Officinale Rosc) in Boloso Bombe and Kindo Koisha woredas of Wolaita zone in SNNPR Hence, the Multiple Linear Regression Model was employed to see factors that determine the supply of ginger. The study has evaluated the main factors affecting the supply of ginger based on the Multiple Linear Regression Model. Thus, the econometric model has identified the amount of introduced seed made available for farmers to be the most important variable affecting (positively) the supply of ginger. As a result, the findings of this work have suggested Research Institutions, NGOs and other stockholders can play a vital role in addressing the farmers’ question of introduced seed. Further, the number of livestock owned significantly and positively affected the volume of ginger supplied. The results of this manuscript also suggested building household assets (i.e. livestock) through household asset building programs will remedy the case. But income from other sources (exclude ginger) adversely affected the amount of ginger supplied. Thus, the findings pointed out that farmers should compare and contrast between the two and decide accordingly. Hence, extension workers and other concerned bodies were expected to play valuable roles in teaching and directing the farmers so as they opt effectively and efficiently
