I apply principles in economic psychology and social psychology to analyse decision-making in agricultural technology utilisation and also environmental resources utilisation. My current work concerns understanding the low utilisation of sustainable agricultural intensification among smallholder farmers in developing countries. I seek to improve utilisation of innovations to achieve their purpose and give more meaning to research, through analysis of farmers' decision making as influenced by farm household socio-economic factors; their perception of efficacy; their perception of access to production resources, and; also of institutional arrangements on the utilisation of the innovations.
