ABSTRACT:

Risk of biological pests and vectors remains a major constraint to cowpea production in Nigeria. The management of the risk of these pests and vectors in cowpea production requires biological, chemical and economic knowledge. The ~ic aspect which is the basis of this study deals with risk management jn cowpea production. Therefore, this study examines the production risk problem facing cowpea farmers in Kwara state in Nigeria. Using the Target -MOTAD model, we determined the set and tevel of production activities that optimize cowpea production returns in the study area. Our findings also revealed that brown cowpea is less risky than white cowpea; and. that unavailability of labour is one of major problems faced by cowpea farmers during pesticide application.
