REMITTANCE AND CONSERVATION TECHNOLOGY ADOPTION

We analyzed the impact of remittance receipt and other socioeconomic characteristics on the conservation technology adoption among farmers in Chitwan, Nepal. Out of 25 soil and water conservation practices generally seem prevalent among farmers in the Country, most farmers seemed to have adopted only five of those practices. We compared the factors affecting the number of adoption of these practices using Poisson quasi-likelihood and semiparametric Poisson models. Results favor the choice of semiparametric Poisson model to understand the choice of conservation practices by farmers.
