This present study conducted in Adamawa state and Jaunpur district has effectively reported the socio-economic determinants in rain-fed maize production in the areas. The major findings showed that rain-fed maize production was dominated by young energetic men who are literate, well experienced and practice farming as their major occupation in the study areas. The results of the multiple regression analysis showed that gender, age, marital status, literacy level, farming experience and household size had positively influenced the output of maize in Adamawa state. Similarly, four variables (gender, marital status, literacy level and main occupation) of the estimated variables in Jaunpur district had positively influenced the output of rain-fed maize. The study suggests the need to prioritize researches in socio-economic determinants of rain-fed maize to increase productivity and income of farmers in the study areas.
