One of the significant characteristics of modern American agriculture is its rapidly changing technology. New practices and techniques are constantly being developed by research agencies. Society benefits from these research findings only to the extent that they are diffused to and used by farmers.
One of the important problems inherent in a rapidly changing economy is that of effectively communicating scientific information to the potential user of that information. Much research has been done in recent years to determine the nature of the process by which new ideas and practices are diffused from their source of origin and ultimately implemented. The research here-in reported is based upon these past research findings and their application to subsistence farmers in less developed countries.
