Abstract: Africa has found it compelling to focus on innovations and policy targeted at increased use of modern input to improve productivity. In tandem with this, Federal Government of Nigeria in 2015 established the Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP).The study therefore assesses the awareness and adoption of Anchor Borrowers Programme (ABP) among rice farmers. Primary data was obtained from a total of 240 respondents with the aid of a well-structured questionnaire using a multi-stage sampling procedure. The data was analyzed using descriptive statistics and probit regression model. The results revealed that about only 40% of the respondents were aware of ABP. The result of the probit model also revealed that access to credit, engagement in off-farm work, membership of cooperative society were critical to adoption of ABP. Particularly, the study revealed that rice farmers’ awareness of ABP significantly determines ABP adoption. Furthermore, rice farmers who engage in off-farm work were more likely of adopt ABP. Years of farm experience also had a negative relationship with ABP adoption , and could imply that rice farmers with several years of farming experience are risk averse, and may instead settle for their conventional means of rice production. The study recommends that calculated efforts should be made to communicate Government programs to rural areas where majority of the farmers are domiciled, so as to increase the awareness on the Program. This is so because, findings from the study revealed that majority of rice farmers in the study area were unaware of the Anchor Borrowers Program. In addition to this, adoption of this program has been revealed to hinge on the level of Awareness on ABP by rice farmers.
