Jeffrey Jordan ()

No 35505, 2005 Annual Meeting, February 5-9, 2005, Little Rock, Arkansas from Southern Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: This paper explores, in the context of social capital theory, why farmers choose to use sustainable agricultural practices. The hypothesis tested is that farmers who exhibit higher levels of social capital will adopt such practices more often than those who exhibit lower levels of social capital.
