Abstract

This study identifies factors affecting irrigation technology adoption among soybean producers in Louisiana. We conducted survey to collect information regarding irrigation practices and concerns among the soybean farmers, then estimated technology adoption model using logit framework and analyzed the impact of different factors on irrigation technology adoption. Our estimated results show that the predicted probability for adopting furrow irrigation increases as well depth and land holding size increase. Additionally, farming experience, farm revenue, well drilling cost, education, and maintenance cost have negative effect on adopting furrow irrigation technology.
