Abstract

A study was conducted to determine: ( i) some selected socio-ec01Lomic factors related to the adoption of ANP practices by rural households,. (ii) the relationships of these selected factors in the adopti01L of ANP practices,. (iii) which of the factors would make significant contributions to the non-adopti01L of ANP practices by the households, and (iv) some of the reasons for the non-adoption of ANPpractices. 1t was found that the adoption of health practices was of a higher level than that attained in food practices. Five out of fourteen socio-economic factors were found to contribute significantly towards adoption of ANP practices. These factors were: educational attainment,. family size,. age,. attitude towards ANP ideas and practices,. and club membership. The lack ofhuman and non-human resources such as land labour, capitale and time, an unfavourable attitude towards ANP ideas atLd practices and some environmenta,l factors were among the common problems encountered during the adoption process.
