Factors Influencing the Adoption Decision: An Analysis of Adopters and Nonadopters.
King, Robert N.; Rollins, Timothy
Journal of Agricultural Education, v36 n4 p38-47 1995
An agricultural innovation (nitrogen testing) had been used by 127 of a sample of 220 farmers. Adoption of the technique was influenced by information and change agents' attitudes. Adopters were also motivated by cost savings. Both adopters and nonadopters either did not have or use soil sampling skills needed to perform the test correctly. Suggestions for improving adoption of innovations were formulated. (SK)
