Abstract:  The paper examines the concepts of farm renting, farm pledging and sharecropping as correlates of poverty status among farmers in Nigeria. A multistage random sampling technique was used to select farmers in Ondo state, where the practice of these concepts predominates. Data were collected through structured interview schedules and data analyzed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences. One-way analysis of variance for the six categories of the respondents on expenditure, poverty alleviating strategies and income from other activities shows that there is a significant difference among the respondents for the variables examined. The implication of these findings is that poverty alleviation programmes should focus the types of income generating activities examined in the study.
