Amente Negussa


This study was initiated to Market Analysis of Peanut in Bambasi District; Benishangul Gumuz Region, Western Ethiopia. The focus of the study was to analyze the peanut market channel in the study area. Different variables were hypothesized to determine quantity of peanut supply to the market. The data was supplemented by primary and secondary sources. The multiple linear regression model was applied to estimate the effects of explanatory variables on quantity of peanut supplied to the market. The results obtained from this analysis indicate extension services, volume of peanut produced, distance to the market, and average price of peanut were found to be the most important significant variables influencing peanut marketing in the district. Therefore, providing extension services, improving volume of peanut produced, improving transportation facilities to strengthen the vertical and horizontal linkages among the marketing agents are recommended to develop and strengthen information on peanut product marketing in the study area.

Keywords: Peanut, Bambasi, market analysis, multiple linear regression model.
