The Structure of Farmers’ Perceptions of Ground Water Pollution

A. H. Elnagheeb, Jeffrey Jordan () and Vonda Humphrey

Journal of Agricultural and Applied Economics, 1995, vol. 27, issue 1, 224-237

Abstract: Data from a 1992 Georgia Farm Practices survey are used to examine the structure of farmers' perceptions of ground water pollution and their support of regulations to protect ground water. Estimates of the influence of farm and farmer characteristics on pollution perceptions and support for pollution control were computed using a multiple-indicator model. Results show that the willingness to change farm practices to protect ground water is positively related to how an operator perceives the seriousness of the pollution problem. Regulatory policies that negatively affect farmers' income are likely to be opposed by farmers.
