''Factors affecting Willingness to Accept compensation for crops conversion programs: a farm level study in Tunisia''
( 2018, Vol. 38 No.1 )
Offering a case study of Northeast of Tunisia, this study identifies socio-economic factors that affect the willingness to accept compensation for the conversion of their current cropping patterns towards more water-saving ones.A survey questionnaire was used for collecting data. A logistic regression model was used to analyze the data.Results showed that a majority of the farmers self-identified as having accepted a compensation for crops conversion program. Empirical results of the logistic regression model showed that eight factors surveyed, age, farm size, cereal area, parcel number, cattle fattening activity, groundwater salinity, owned area, and rental area were significantly related to a willingness to accept compensation for crops conversion programs.
