Texas agricultural commodity board members' perceptions of the 2002 U.S. farm bill Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • Extension educators have important roles in educating the public on national agricultural policies. The purpose of the study reported here was to determine Texas agricultural commodity (corn, cotton, grain sorghum, and wheat) board members' perceptions of the 2002 Farm Bill. Male respondents, 46 to 55 years old, considered the Cooperative Extension Service/universities and the Internet as good information sources for learning about the farm bill. Cotton board members believed their organizations influenced the bill's final outcome. Extension educators should maximize their resources by using information sources suited to stakeholders' needs for learning about future farm bills. Copyright by Extension Journal, Inc.
