The sign of the coefficient gives the direction of the relationship: increase or decrease in probability due to the predictor. For example, as the age of the farm operator increases, the probability of having dial-up or broadband Internet access relative to no Internet access declines, as indicated by the negative and significant coefficients. (More discussion on the underlying methodology of this analysis is presented in Appendix D.) Other significant model results include: Larger farm businesses, as indicated by more hired workers, have a higher probability of broadband Internet access. Farm households with income above \$50,000 have a higher probability of broadband Internet access. The relative probability of broadband Internet use does not increase as the number of providers in an area increases. 35

7 Conceptually, farmers may choose to (1) purchase inputs in the nearest local town, (2) bypass the nearest local town but purchase inputs within the market reach of the nearest farm service center, or (3) bypass the farm service center altogether. Purchasing patterns are examined for three broad categories of resource inputs: farm inputs (feed, seed, and fertilizer), farm machinery and equipment, and farm credit. Comparing input purchases in each of these three mutually exclusive categories allows us to observe the changing nature of farm/local area interrelationships and the use of the Internet. We present results using logistic regression from one of these models in table 16. Our results suggest that the market reach of the nearest town may no longer define what the farm operator perceives as local. Making farm purchases over the Internet is the strongest factor increasing the likelihood of the operator bypassing the nearest town and even the more distant farm service center (table 16). As farm operators increase their participation in e-commerce, their relationships with local suppliers are likely to weaken. Farm operators may increasingly opt for distant suppliers to secure lower prices or better access to niche inputs. Suppliers with an established Internet presence, including local ones, would appear better positioned to retain customers within the local economy.
