Profitability of a recommended strategy for development on two Banks Peninsula farms
This paper represents part of a research on the economic and human aspects of farm development on Banks Peninsula. The aim is to allocate advisory officers to districts in such a way as to maximise the response in national farm efficiency. In this problem both human and economic factors have to be considered. The profitability to the nation and to the individual farmer are obviously important and this is reported here. Equally important is the rate at which farmers are likely to adopt the development programme advocated by advisory officers.
