Abstract

Many African Countries including Ethiopia are producing wheat for both consumption and sale. Wheat is a strategic commodity which generates farm income and improves food security. The aim of this systematic review was to generate comprehensive information about the extent of improved wheat technology adoption contribution to farm household income in Ethiopia. Data searching was done using Google scholar and Science Direct web search engines. Studies conducted starting from 2012 to date were included to address the objective of review. studies related to impact of agricultural technology adoption in Ethiopia were critically identified for this review. Studies conducted before 2012, duplicated articles, abstract only, book chapters that have no full information were excluded. Despite many studies have been conducted on improved wheat technology adoption and its impact, no summarized information on this particular topic. Improved wheat technology adoption has a positive and significant effect on wheat productivity and farm household income, thereby increasing their likelihood of decreasing poverty levels. Improved wheat technology adoption contributes significantly from 9% to 55% increase to farm household income in Ethiopia. Households adopting improved wheat technologies are more likely to have higher income compared to non-adopters. This suggests that promotion of improved wheat technology can enhance farm household income in Ethiopia.
