Description: This study examines factors that affect the participation behavior of limited resource farmers in agricultural cost-share programs in Alabama. The data were generated from a survey administered to a sample of limited resource farm operators. A binary logit model was employed to analyze the data. Results indicate that college education, age, gross sales, ratio of owned acres to total acres, and rented acres, as well as membership in a comavation association, had significant influence on cost-share program participation.

Keywords: binary logit, cost-share program, limited resource farmers, participation behavior
