FARM COMPUTER ADOPTION IN THE GREAT PLAINS

Dana Hoag (), James C. Ascough and W. Marshall Frasier

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1999, vol. 31, issue 1, 11

Abstract: Computers change rapidly, yet the last survey on computer use in agriculture was in 1991. We surveyed Great Plains producers in 1995 and used logit analysis to characterize adopters and non-adopters. About 37% of these producers use computers which is consistent with the general population. We confirmed previous surveys emphasizing the importance of education, age/experience, and other farm characteristics on adoption. However, we also found that education and experience may no longer be a significant influence. Future research and education could focus on when and where computers are most needed, and therefore when adoption is most appropriate.
