CSISA Research Note

This study used experimental choice modeling to examine farmers’ preferences for inbred and hybrid cultivars with a range of DT characteristics and to explore how these preferences differ among farmers, grouping farmers into ‘classes’ with similar underlying characteristics. This classification is useful in identifying possible market sectors.
