AN ANALYSIS OF POTENTIAL CONSERVATION EFFORT OF CRP PARTICIPANTS IN THE STATE OF MISSOURI: A LATENT VARIABLE APPROACH

This study investigated the influence of economic, personal, and attitudinal factors on the intended conservation effort of a sample of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) contract holders after their contracts have expired. Economic factors were found to dominate the decision about future conservation effort. Attitudes towards conservation were found to have no significant influence on the decision. This fact may relate to the recent changes in the regulatory environment brought about by the 1985 Food Security Act which changed conservation from a voluntary to regulated nature.
