要旨
Agriculture is a very risky business and farmers have to deal with various socio-economic and environmental challenges at farm level. Therefore, farmers have to adopt certain management options to cope with those different kinds of risks. Therefore, using cross-sectional data of 210 farm households collected from three cotton districts, this study aims to investigate the effect of perceived risks in farming on farmers’ decision to adopt offfarm diversification income sources. This study uses correlation analysis and probit regression model to explore the study objectives. The findings of the study confirms our hypothesis that perception of different kinds of risk leads farmers to diversify their income sources in order to sustain their livelihood in case of loses from agriculture. In addition to perceived risks, the study also found positive association of education, farming experience, risk averse nature of farm household were the other factors that significantly affect the farmers decision to adopt off-farm diversification income sources.
