Decision Making and Biases in Agriculture and Resources

Program Lead: Associate Professor Louisa Coglan   |   Deputy Program Lead: Dr Gerry Wunsch

The agricultural and resources sector is subject to changes in requirements how technologies and techniques can be used to achieve economic viability and sustainability. The effective use and compliance with policies around safe use of chemicals and technologies affect their social licence as well as the results for the Australian economy and environment. Research in this area will identify the role of economic barriers, vested interest and sunk cost, as well as the role of behavioural biases influencing decision making of producers and growers in agriculture, and employees and agents in resources to ensure best practice with respect to environmental and human health and safety considerations.
