BENDER, RALPH E.; MATHIS, GILBERT L.
THE MAJOR PRUPOSE OF THIS STUDY WAS TO DETERMINE THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN YOUNG FARMERS' SELF PERCEPTION AS ENTREPRENEURS AND THEIR MONETARY AND NONMONETARY SUCCESS IN FARMING. DATA FROM 125 QUESTIONNAIRES RETURNED FROM A SAMPLE OF 250 SELECTED YOUNG FARMERS LOCATED IN 35 OHIO COUNTIES WERE TESTED BY FACTOR AND MULTIPLE REGRESSION ANALYSIS AND ANALYSIS OF VARIANCE. SOME FINDINGS WERE--(1) NINE FARM MANAGEMENT PROBLEM AREAS WERE IDENTIFIED FROM THE RATINGS GIVEN 43 MANAGERIAL TASKS, (2) PLANNING AND ORGANIZING RESOURCES, KEEPING RECORDS AND ACCOUNTS, AND WISE USE OF TIME WERE THE CONCEPTS MOST YOUNG FARMERS HAD OF MANAGEMENT, (3) YOUNG FARMERS WHO RATED THEMSELVES HIGH AS MANAGERS WERE ALMOST ONE LEVEL HIGHER ON A FARMING STATUS SCALE THAN THOSE WHO RATED THEMSELVES MEDIUM OR LOW AS MANAGERS, AND (4) YOUNG FARMERS WITH MONETARY-ORIENTED FARM GOALS HAD HIGHER FARM GOAL ATTAINMENT AND MORE FARM EXPERIENCE THAN THOSE WITH INTERMEDIATE OR NONMONETARY-ORIENTED FARM GOALS. HELPING DECIDE FARM ENTERPRISES WAS RATED AS THE STRONG PART OF THE VOCATIONAL AGRICULTURE PROGRAM, AND PLANNING FAMILY GOALS WAS THE MAJOR WEAKNESS. THE APPENDIXES LIST QUESTIONNAIRE FORMS, INTERCORRELATION TABLES, AND A BIBLIOGRAPHY. (WB)
