Analysis of Determinants of Soybean (Glycine max.) Market Supply in the Case of Assosa Zone of Benishangulgumuz Regional State, Ethiopia

One of the most significant and essential oilseeds for domestic use, commercial markets, industrial input, and cash cropping is soyabean. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the variables influencing the supply of soybean farmers to the market. The study was conducted in Homosha and Assosa woreda of Assosa zone in Benishangul Gumuz regional state of west Ethiopia. Assosa city is 683 km far from the capital Addis Ababa in west of the country. The study was conducted in the seven kebeles (Selga 24, Afasizm, Amba 01, Amba 10, Algela, Dareselam and Ashura) which found in Homosha and Assosa Woreda, Assosa zone, Western Ethiopia. Both primary and secondary sources provided the data. Using a structured questionnaire, individual interviews were used to gather the primary data. 194 randomly chosen households in the Assosa and Homosha districts provided the primary data for this study, which were then gathered through interviews. The multiple linear regression models' results show that, as predicted, the number of oxen owned and the size of the land sold for soybeans had a significant impact on the amount of soybeans that households marketed. Therefore, if the market supply needs to be increased, special attention must be paid to these variables. The government ought to be enticing farmers by spreading knowledge about the benefits of using oxen and how to manage their land.
