Abstract

A whole-farm simulation analysis is used to investigate producer preferences for adoption of separate tillage practices (minimum-till, combination-till, or no-till) under provisions of both the 1981 and 1985 farm bills. An analysis of preference for participation or nonparticipation in government programs under both farm bills is also considered. For risk-averse producers, a combination-tillage practice with program participation is found to dominate (as measured by stochastic dominance) the other strategies considered under both the 1981 and 1985 provisions.
