Attitudes can be strong predictors of behaviours or the acceptance of ideas. The study therefore investigated the attitude of small scale farmers towards the use of Agricultural Indigenous knowledge in their farming activities. Using multistage sampling techniques involving simple random and snow sampling techniques 185 respondents were selected from eight communities in the district. Data was collected using questionnaire and analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistical analysis. The results show that farmers have positive attitude towards the use of Agricultural Indigenous Knowledge (AIK) in their farming. The study also indicated that gender and age have significant effect on the attitude of farmers towards the use AIK however education has no significant effect.
