Abstract: The aimed of this study was to investigate the effects of sweet orange production on the livelihood among
farmers in Manyu Division, Cameroon. The study employed primary data collection through self-administered

The results from the linear regression analysis revealed that the drivers of sweet orange production are; age of respondent, farm experience, size of farm,
age of farm, cost of farm inputs, quantity of output and income from sales. The result from percentage ranking shows that the major constrains of sweet orange farmers are: credit facilities, lack of agrochemicals, absent of extension services, high cost of farm inputs, high cost of labour, pests and diseases and bush fire.
