Understanding Adoption of Soil and Water Conservation Techniques: The role of new owners
AbstractThis paper analyzes the adoption behavior of small holder farmers using comparable plot-level duration data for Kenya and The Philippines and is robust to the inclusion of unobserved village, household, plot and time effects.� While previous studies on adoption using duration or panel data have focused on the role of various changing village- and household-level factors, no previous adoption study has emphasized the crucial role of land ownership changes.
