The opportunities and challenges of agricultural Decision Support Systems (DSS)1 in connecting science and practice are well rehearsed in the academic literature. The focus has mainly been on issues of poor uptake by practitioners. These have been problematised and theorised from different perspectives, largely in relation to the epistemological gap between the hard and soft approaches respectively of science and practice. Given the rapidly changing context in agriculture (social, technological, environmental, institutional) it seems a good time to re appraise the role of DSS and ask questions about their future development and relevance.
