Brian Briggeman () and Brian Whitacre

No 6871, 2008 Annual Meeting, February 2-6, 2008, Dallas, Texas from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Using the 2005 ARMS data, significant factors are identified that influence the decision to purchase farm inputs over the Internet and reasons for not adopting the Internet. Internet input purchasing farmers tend to be younger and more educated. Non-adopters that are more educated most likely cite Internet security concerns as their primary reason for not adopting.
