This book assessed the effect of rural-urban migration on rice production in Enugu and Ebonyi States, Nigeria.
Multi-stage and purposive sampling procedures were used to select 120 respondents which constituted the sample size of the study.
Findings, base on the specific objectives of the study, indicated that majority of the respondents for Enugu and for Ebonyi States were at their youthful age of 16 – 45 years with mean age of 35 years and 36 years respectively.
The mean household size for Enugu State was 8 persons per household and 10 persons per household for Ebonyi State.
Many of the respondents in Enugu State and in Ebonyi were small scale farmers and had below 6 hectares of rice farm land with mean farm size of 4.5ha and 4.6ha respectively.
Enugu State rice farmers produced a total of 3875kg of rice while Ebonyi State rice farmers produced a total of 3450kg of rice.
Poor living conditions, low influx of income and lack of employment were the major reasons for rural-urban migration in Enugu and Ebonyi States.
In Enugu State, 62.68% migrated to the urban areas while in Ebonyi State, 56.91% migrated to the urban areas.
