Abstract: To improve farmers’ production, researchers have developed some agricultural technology, which however produces several consequences, in the usage by farmers. Hence, an attempt was made to study the farmer’s perception of the consequences of arable crops technology in Oyo state. This was achieved through multistage random sampling (using questionnaire). PPMC was used to test the relationship between unintended consequences and some independent variables. It was discovered that benefits, adoption, social participation and contact with extension agents are significant while age and farm size are not significant. Multiple regression analysis of unintended consequences and independent variables shows that there is significant relationship between unintended consequences and independent variables. The most important predictor is adoption, frequency of meetings and cassava productivity.
