Abstract

Multivariate probit analysis of BMP adoption, based on Louisiana sugarcane producer data, indicates that education and cost-sharing programs are effective means of increasing adoption rates. Results also indicate that contemporaneous correlation exists within and between management measures, implying a policy strategy of coordinating education and cost-sharing programs to maximize effectiveness.
