Chickpea is important for its contribution to enhance food security and as source of cash income for a large proportion of the rural households ever. Among the pulses growing in the Woreda, Chickpea is the major crop both in terms of volume of production and area cultivated. It is also the major source of cash income to the farmers among the crops grown in the area. However, enhancing chickpea farmers to reach markets is a key issue needed in the study area. This study was aimed to analyze factors determining market supply of chickpea at farm household level using the data collected from randomly selected 123 farmers. The data collected was analyzed using descriptive statistics and Robust Ordinary Least Square regression model. The results of econometric analysis showed that productivity of chickpea, size of land allocated for chickpea production, lagged price, education level of household head and year of experience in chickpea production of the household head positively and significantly affected chickpea market supply at farm household level. Based on the study results, policy interventions like encouragement of the concerned body to increase the productivity of chickpea, strengthening access to education, strengthening trainings are required.
