No 21838, 2000 Annual meeting, July 30-August 2, Tampa, FL from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: Multivariate probit analysis of BMP adoption, based on Louisiana sugarcane producer data, indicates that education and cost-sharing programs are effective means of increasing adoption rates. Results also indicate that contemporaneous correlation exists within and between management measures, implying a policy strategy of coordinating education and cost-sharing programs to maximize effectiveness.
