Abstract

This paper examines producer perceptions of jointly beneficial relationships among best management practices for improved water quality. Identifying producer tendencies to bundle these types of practices may increase adoption and lower the costs of voluntary adoption programmes, particularly those relying on dissemination of information. Unlike previous studies, perceived changes in environmental quality, as well as perceived changes in profits, are used to define jointly beneficial inputs. The econometric model used in the analysis demonstrates that two of the three management practices considered are perceived to be jointly beneficial.
