Abstract: 

To investigate the role of managerial capabilities of onion farmers in Ghoghan Azarshahr county, East Azarbaijan of Iran, on yield augmentation, a sample of 105 manager-farmers were randomly selected. To gather more planned data, a well- designed and pre-tested questionnaire were completed through personal interviewing. The capabilities of farmers were measured by qualitative scale of weak, medium and strong. Questions were based on reviews of theoretical and applied literature. Data were analyzed using some descriptive statistics and also Spearman's correlation and multiple regression methods. The results showed that there were significant positive correlation between the capabilities of farmers and their levels of onion yields. The correlation coefficient of planning, organizing, conducting, controlling, innovation, representing strength with relevant agencies, technical, commercial, financial- management and accounting abilities as correlated with onion yield were 0.50, 0.50, 0.45, 0.33, 0.49, 0.49, 0.55, 0.66, 0.42 and 0.18, respectively. However, results of stepwise regression analyses showed that commercial, technical, and organizational abilities, with determination coefficient of 0.506 appear to significantly determine the variation in onion yield. Thus, the extension of managerial science and experience within the farmers to alleviate the yield gaps is recommended. This new approach would be cheaper and more efficient.
