Farmers' Preferences for Methods of Receiving Information on New or Innovative Farming Practices.
Riesenberg, Lou E.; Gor, Christopher Obel
Journal of Agricultural Education, v30 n3 p7-13 Fall 1989
Survey of 386 Idaho farmers (response rate 58 percent) identified preferred methods of receiving information on new or innovative farming practices. Analysis revealed preference for interpersonal methods (demonstrations, tours, and field trips) over mass media such as computer-assisted instruction (CAI) and home study, although younger farmers, those with larger acreages, and those with college experience liked CAI and publications.
