The explanatory variables consisted of farmer’s age, farm land size, farmer’s level of education, farmer’s experience on conservation tillage methods, number of family members, off-farm employment, number of land parcels and farmer ‘s information on conservation tillage methods.The results indicated that some variables such as farmer ‘s level of education, farmer’s experience on conservation tillage methods, off-farm employment, farm land size and farmer’s information on conservation tillage systems have positive and significant effect on the adoption of reduced-tillage systems, while the variable of the number of land parcels has a negative and significant effect.
