Electronic Information Systems and Farmer Decision Making: Five Case Studies

Author

  • Streeter, Deborah H

Abstract

In-depth interviews with four farmers and one grain purchaser currently using electronic information are used to explore the impact of electronic information systems on decision-making. Key findings are that the most successful users had articulated information needs, had an adequate store of human capital, used electronic information either to save time or to become more efficient with time, and had at least an informal overall management information system in their business. Thus, successful users found that use of an electronic information system improved decision-making. Copyright 1992 by Oxford University Press.
