Factors and risks associated with integrated, conventional and sustainable agricultural farming

Abstract


F. D. K. Anim and B. Mandleni

A multinomial logistic regression was used to estimate the impact and risks associated with integrated, conventional and sustainable agribusiness farming. The results of the study suggested that farmers operating on conventional and sustainable agribusiness farming were more likely to be those with knowledge of technology and diversified agribusiness farming. Compared with integrated agribusiness farming, these farmers were those with low levels of education and less access to information with higher business risks. In conclusion, the study suggested that in developing areas dominated by farmers with low levels of education and access to information, integrated agribusiness farming would be appropriate.
