The data were collected by means of a questionnaire prepared for this purpose, and the correlation, percentages, arithmetic averages, weighted average, t-test were approved. The results showed a clear increase in the respondents ’tendency towards emulating their colleagues in adopting improved agricultural practices. The results also showed a positive correlation at 0.01 level between the trend and each of the income and agricultural holdings level. And there is a negative association relationship at 0.01 level between orientation and each of age and educational level.
