To give a ray of statistical information on agricultural productivity the Central Statistical Agency (C.S.A) has been providing statistics on inputs applied area and volume of fertilizers and improved seeds used. As part of the 2005/06 (1998 E.C) Agricultural Sample Survey, data on fertilizer, improved seed, irrigation and pesticide applied area and volume of fertilizers and improved seeds used within the private peasant holdings was collected, processed and summarized.
The survey results are presented in this bulletin and other electronic media for data users. The report comprises three parts. Part I contains the objectives of this annual survey, Part II deals with coverage of the survey, sample design, field organization and method of data collection and Part III includes summary of the results. Estimation procedures and formulation of estimates of totals and variance are presented in Appendix I. Estimates of the standard errors with the corresponding coefficients of variations for quantity of inputs used and inputs applied area are presented in Appendix II.
Number of Holders, Inputs Applied Area and Quantity of Inputs Used (All Fertilizers, Natural, DAP, Urea, Indigenous Seed, Improved Seed, Pesticide, Irrigation, Extension Package)
Number of Holders Applying Inputs by Educational Status
Number of Holders Reporting Damaged Crop Area (Crop Disease, Frost or Floods, Locust, Shortage of Rain, Too Much Rain, Wild Animals, Birds, Hailstone, Pests, Weeds)
Number of Holders by Type of Farm Practice
Irrigated Land by Source of Water
Farm Area Protected Against Erosion
Oxen Shortage by Coping Strategy
