Abstract: The study aims to identify and better understand the barriers to knowledge integration for improved agricultural technologies and their adoption. Results suggest a potential link between farmers’ levels of community organization and levels of trust, with levels of knowledge integration surrounding agricultural technologies and their adoption. Increasing the planning and follow-up of newly introduced agricultural technologies has the potential to encourage interdisciplinary approaches and improve food security outcomes.
