Adoption of E-Commerce Strategies for Agribusiness Firms
J. Henderson - F. Dooley - J. Akridge
eBook Edition: 2000

This paper analyzes the factors guiding Internet and e-Commerce implementation by agribusiness firms. The relationship between Internet/e-commerce strategies and manager perceptions on the barriers and factors to e-Commerce adoption are analyzed in a supply-chain management framework. Using factor analysis and an orders Probit model, results indicate that the implementation of Internet/e-commerce strategies is more likely to be adopted in larger firms with a global scope. Also, manager perceptions regarding supply-chain functions influencing transaction costs are more strongly associated with Internet/e-commerce adoption than other functions influencing production costs.
