    Despite the benefits arising from incorporating crop residue in the
    soil, some farmers decide to burn or sell it. The objective of the work
    described in this paper was to quantify the adoption of crop residue
    incorporation by Italian farmers, and to identify the barriers and drivers
    that they perceive towards this agricultural management practice.
