Abstract: Despite the fact that majority of the rural farmers are registered members of agricultural cooperative societies in Nigeria , they are still not enjoying the associated benefits of large scale production because of some identifiable constraints such as, low capital base, gender inequality, high interest rate on loan, ineffective government supervision, inadequate storage facilities, poor transportation facilities, poor information and communication, member’s dissatisfaction, disloyalty and poor commitments. The study therefore assessed the level of farmers’ participation in agricultural cooperative society in Kogi State, Nigeria. Multi staged sampling techniques was used in selecting three hundred and fifty two (352) respondents from six villages in three agricultural zones in Kogi State and structured questionnaires were used to elicit information from the respondents. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics such as frequency tables, percentages, mean, standard deviation and ranks and Ordinal logistic regression model (proportional odds ratio) and the level of farmers’ participation in agricultural cooperative activities was analyzed using participation index formula which was further categorized into low, moderate and high. The Ordinal logistic regression model showed that socioeconomic factors such as gender, year of education, household size, marital status, annual income years of farming experience and years of cooperative experience influenced the level of farmers participation in agricultural cooperative society. The research therefore recommends that agricultural cooperative society should carry out activities that are in line with the needs of the farmers and should engage private extension services to educate her members so as to bridge the gap of inadequate extension agents from the government.
