Abstract: We examine the impact of the Federal Government of Nigeria's (FGN) growth enhancement support scheme (GESS) on responsible use of crop protection products (CPPs) in rural Nigeria Results from the use of logistic regressions shows that GESS significantly impact on farmers' access to CPPs but does not significantly impart on farmers' knowledge and skill of CPP application, and in several cases the misuse has led to deterioration of soil fertility..
