Adoption of Internet Strategies by Agribusiness Firms 31
Henderson, Jason R.; Dooley, Frank J.; Akridge, Jay T.; Carerre, Antonio.
This paper explores the factors guiding Internet adoption by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers to and catalysts for Internet adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an ordered Probit model, results indicate that Internet strategies are more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding the impact of Internet adoption on transaction costs are just as likely to influence adoption as the perceived impacts on more traditional production costs.

Consumer Preference Variation between Domestic and Imported Food 31
Parcell, Joseph L.; Gedikoglu, Haluk.
Increasing concerns about a healthy diet, food safety and support for the local economy provide new opportunities for farmers to increase their farm income by locally selling their farm products. The major challenge for farmers making local sales is to predict consumer preferences correctly and provide goods to the market accordingly. By analyzing results from a consumer survey conducted in the Midwest, the current study determines the consumer preferences for domestic artisan cheese compared with processed cheese and imported French cheese compared with U.S. artisan cheese. The results of the econometric analysis show that consumer preferences vary between domestic and imported cheese. The results also show that experience attributes are more influential...

Impact of Alternative Land Management Options on Soil Fertility and Erosion in Uganda 31
Birungi, Patrick; Hassan, Rashid M..
Using a data set collected in eight districts of Uganda, this study investigates how investment in soil fertility management (SFM) and conservation practices may affect natural resource outcomes, particularly the extent and level of soil erosion and soil nutrient loss. The study used ordered probit models and the results suggest that investment in SFM and conservation practices greatly improves soil fertility and reduces soil erosion. From a policy perspective, public investment to encourage use of SFM and conservation technologies would help the country achieve sustainable agricultural production.

Impact of Innovativeness and Environmental Stewardship on Adoption of Energy Crops 31
Gedikoglu, Haluk.
The Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007 set a renewable fuel standard of 36 billion gallons of biofuel production by 2022, of which 21 billion gallons are to come from cellulosic sources, such as Switchgrass and Miscanthus.The objective of this study is to measure the impact of innovativeness and environmental stewardship on farmers’ willingness to grow Switchgrass and Miscanthus.The results of the current study show that innovative farmers are not more willing to grow Switchgrass or Miscanthus than late adopters and laggards. Farmers’ environmental stewardship is found to have a negative impact on willingness to grow Switchgrass and Miscanthus

Impact of Off-Farm Employment on Farmers’ Willingness to Grow Switchgrass and Miscanthus 31
Gedikoglu, Haluk.
Current study analyzed the socio-economic factors that impact farmers’ willingness to grow switchgrass and Miscanthus in Missouri and Iowa. The results of study show that current level of farmers’ willingness to grow either crop is low. Hence, there are barriers to accomplishing to goal of producing 21 billion gallons of cellulosic ethanol by 2022, as set by the Energy Independence and Security Act of 2007. The results of the ordered probit regressions show that farmers with higher education levels and smaller farm sales are more willing to grow energy crops. The results of this study show that currently growing energy crops is more attractive to small farms as a source of crop diversification, rather than an alternative crop production in the big scale by...
