Abstract

This study examines the factors that affect conservation practice choices of CRP farmers in Alabama. From over 9,000 contracts enrolled in the state between 1986 and 1995, 594 were randomly selected for the study. A multiple-regression analysis was employed to analyze the data. Results indicate that education, ratio of cropland in CRP, farm size, gender, prior crop practice, and geographic location of contract had a significant influence on the choice of conservation practice adopted.
