Profile of Pesticide Free Consumers
A graduate student called me this morning requesting information on studies
that profile consumers who choose to buy pesticide-free food. This would
include not only the reasons for their choice, but are there any
distinguishing characteristics (age,education, experiences,
phobias/concerns, etc., etc., that identifies/characterizes these persons).
I would appreciate any references you might be able to share. Thanks.
