Abstract or Summary
  • Understanding which factors motivate farmers to adopt certain practices is animportant part of helping to solve many agri-environmental issues. This study uses 19interviews with farmers along Oregon’s Willamette River, a statewide producer survey, andselect interviews with organizations and agencies active in the farming community toexamine the extent to which farmers’ environmental ethics and worldviews influence theirpraxis. Results indicate that while conventional- and alternative-style farmers’ ethics andworldviews exist on a spectrum, general differences can be identified between the twogroups who oftentimes have differing ideas about what practices are beneficial for theenvironment. Although these values and beliefs play a role in shaping their praxis, theirinteractions with distinct formal and informal institutions and the social and economicchallenges they face are equally as influential and are potentially shaping and reinforcingbeliefs and practices.
