Abstract: This study examines changes in the intentions, attitudes, and beliefs of farmers regarding their use of gene technology. Of 656 respondents to a postal survey in 2000, the views of 115 were assessed again in 2002. Relationships between intention to use gene technology, attitudes towards using gene technology, and beliefs about market acceptance, commercial viability, and environmental risk from using the technology were similarly supported in 2000 and 2002. Attitudes and beliefs about the consequences of using gene technology are discussed as key determining factors in farmer and grower decisions regarding use of gene technology.
