Agricultural Production in Ethiopia: Results of the 2012 ATA Baseline Survey

Nicholas Minot and Bradley Sawyer
International Food Policy Research Institute

The survey was based on a stratified random sample of 3,000 households in the four main regions of Ethiopia: Tigray, Amhara, Oromiya, and the Southern Nations, Nationalities, and People’s (SNNP) region. The selected households were dispersed across 100 woredas and 200 kebeles. In order to gather more in-depth information on the 83 woredas, initially identified as the ATA zone, these woredas were oversampled. In other words, 67 of the 83 ATA woredas were included in the sample.

This report describes the main results of the survey on a range of key indicators identified by the ATA. It covers crop production and yields, agricultural inputs, agronomic practices, crop marketing, cooperatives, irrigation, access to services, and household characteristics.
