Title:
Adoption of modern varieties and fertilizer use on rice in the Eastern Tarai of Nepal
Publication date:
1985
Summary:
Factors influencing the adoption of MV (modern variety) rices and fertilizer in the Tarai of southeastern Nepal were examined through multivariate probit (varietal adoption) and tobit (fertilizer adoption and use rates) regression models. This study reaffirms the finding that the adoption of modern rice technology is highest where irrigation exists. Tenure status and access to credit were significantly related to varietal adoption but family and farm size and the operator's education were not. Similar variables, in addition to fertilizer price, influenced the probability of fertilizer adoption and use rates on rice.
