Summary of "Technology Use Among Youth While Operating Farm Equipment."

Distracted driving by using modern technologies has been linked with increased risk of injuries, however, the current research has focused primarily on the use of technology while operating roadway vehicles. The purpose of this study was to explore the use of technology while operating farm equipment among members of an agricultural youth organization (Pennsylvania FFA Association members). An online survey was used to examine the use of technology while operating a tractor, ATV/UTV, skid steer, and truck/car. Survey responses with 10 types of technology use were analyzed in relation to a wide variety of factors including frequency of use, safety beliefs, safety concern, and seeing others using technology. One hundred forty-three youth completed the questionnaire in 2017. Eighty-eight percent of youth surveyed used technology to some extent while operating farm equipment. Self-reported technology use was most influenced by safety beliefs and seeing others using technology while operating farm equipment regardless of the farm equipment type. Findings from this study provide insights into factors behind technology use while engaged in farm work-related driving by youth.
