Attitudes and farmer conservation behaviour

Attitudes and farmer conservation behaviour

Staff Paper Series, Food and Resource Economics Department, University of Florida (293): 31

It is proposed that a farm household's production decisions must be integrated with its utility maximization decisions. A model of the adoption decision is outlined, then, using data from a recent Soil Conservation Service survey, which studied a sample of farmers from the Florida 'Panhandle', an empirical model is specified and estimated. Tests of the importance of attitude-related and profit-related variables, which influence farmers' conservation behaviour, are discussed.
