A sample of 125 respondents was randomly selected using multi-stage sampling techniques precisely stratified proportionate, purposive and simple random sampling techniques. Two sets of questionnaire were developed by the researcher for data collection for the study. The first questionnaire titled: Capacity Building Needs Questionnaire (CBNQ) was designed to collect information on capacity building needs, while the second questionnaire titled: farmers’ Job Performance Questionnaire (FJPQ). The data generated through the pilot testing of the instrument were analyzed using Cronbach Alpha reliability test to determine the internal consistency of the questionnaire items. Reliability coefficients of .79 and .91 were obtained for the capacity building needs and farm managers’ job performance respectively which indicated that the instruments were highly valid and reliable for the study. Data were analyzed using Pearson Product Moment Correlation to answer research questions and to test the hypotheses at .05 level of significance. Findings revealed that there is a positive high extent and significant relationship between capacity building needs of personnel management, facilities management and financial management, and farmer managers’ job performance in Aquata Agricultural zone, Anambra State, amongst others. Some of the recommendations made include; government through the Ministry of Agriculture should facilitate the provision of capacity building needs such as personnel management, facilities management and financial management for improved farm managers’ job performance
