No 36376, 2000 Annual Meeting, June 29-July 1, 2000, Vancouver, British Columbia from Western Agricultural Economics Association

Abstract: Logit and ordered probit analyses were used to identify factors affecting reduced tillage adoption, continuous spring cropping use, and the number of changes made in response to wind erosion. We found problem perceptions or common socioeconomic variables couldn't explain adoption of these practices, but participating in an educational program did.
