Grainne Dilleen, a researcher at South East Technological University in Ireland, is conducting a Ph.D study to investigate the internal and external factors that influence farmers’ intention to adopt Smart Farming Technology (SFT). Specifically, she is interested in the role of trust in technology providers and the influence of the farmer’s network on the adoption decision.
According to Grainne, the use of digital technologies and SFT can contribute to the sustainability of the agriculture sector across the three pillars of the environment, economy, and society. However, to take the first step towards this goal, it is essential to understand the attitudes, motivations, and perceptions of farmers regarding these technologies.
The survey is open to all farmers worldwide, regardless of the type, size, location, or use of technology on their farms. Completing the survey should take no more than 10 minutes, and all responses will remain confidential and analyzed anonymously.
Grainne looks forward to hear from potato farmers worldwide, and encourages anyone interested to access and complete the survey here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/POT23.
