ABSTRACT
In spite of abundant modern technologies and guide lines available for use in increasing Agricultural productivity, most of the Nigeria small scale farmers who constitute the majority in agricultural sector cannot adopt these new innovations. The result is failure to produce enough food for the nation and poor standard of living of the farmers who could not also contribute anything to the economy and development of the country. This paper looks into the problems militating against the adoption of these modern technologies. It further discusses strategies for their acceptance by the small scale farmers.
