This is the research article looked into Determinants of crop production failure across agro-climatic zone of the kuyu woreda, North Shoa, Oromia regional state. Hence, the main objective of the study was to analyses shared factors affecting crop production failure across agro-climatic zone of the study area. From sampled households, relevant data were collected through questionnaires, key informants, focus group discussion and reviews of document. The generated data were analyzed through Kruskal Wallis test, chi-square, mean and percentage, and presented in table, graph and words to ends objectives. Accordingly, it was found that crops were failed due to some biophysical and socio-economic factors in Kuyu woreda. Thus, extreme temperature, extreme rainfall, drought, crop pests, flood storm, hail storm, weeds, frost, unavailability of farming labor, unavailability of draft animals and farming inputs were major constraints to crop production in the study area. Kruskal Wallis statistical calculation results indicate that all aforementioned impediments to crop production were not significantly different among dega, woinadega and kola agro-climatic setup of Kuyu woreda in causing crop production failure except flooding. Therefore, unlike flooding, all other shared identified factors are causing crop production failure in dega, woinadega and kola parts of kuyu woreda.

Keywords: - Crop production failure, Agro-climatic zone and determinant of crop production.
