This report shares the findings of research workshops commissioned by the SPF Landscape Decisions Programme to better understand farmers’ and farm advisors’ motivations for adopting decision support tools (DSTs) in the UK and to provide recommendations for how uptake of DSTs can be enhanced. The focus was on DSTs that can support improvements in farm productivity while at the same time reducing environmental impacts (referred to as e-DSTs throughout). A wide range of DSTs and e-DSTs are available addressing multiple needs, however their uptake by farmers and their advisors has been limited (Rose et al. 2017; Rose et al. 2016; Sohl & Claggett 2013) and there is a need to better understand how the evidence provided by these models, or the tools themselves, can better support farmers’ and their advisors’ decision-making.
