Determinants of choice of crop variety as climate change adaptation option in arid regions of Zimbabwe

This study used the multinomial logit model to analyse the determinants of farmers’ choice of crop variety in the face of climate change. The estimation of the multinomial logit was done by using the sorghum variety options as dependent variable and where farmers grow other crop different from sorghum as the reference state. Results indicate that the key determinants of choosing crop variety are; the price of existing crop variety, level of education of farmers, the size of the farms, government policies and incentives and credit availability.
