Abstract

This study analyzes factors influencing the adoption of agroforestry practices using logit analysis. In particular, the proposition that agroforestry practices have not been adopted by poor households is tested using data from West Godavari in the province of Andhra Pradesh, India. Innovation-decision process was used to guide the selection of variables used in the analysis. The results support the criticism that higher income farmers are the main beneficiaries of agroforestry if only farm forestry is considered. The results, however, do not support the criticism in the case of adoption of home gardens.
