Generating an in-depth understanding of information needs and seeking behaviour is important both for restructuring existing agricultural information systems ISs and for creating new ISs. Many information seeking models have been developed over the years, most are narrowly focused on a specific role or discipline. However, no such specific model has been developed in reference to agriculture or an allied discipline.
Thus, the purpose of this paper is to develop a model to explore the information seeking behaviour ISB of farmers. The proposed model was quantitatively evaluated using empirical data gathered through a survey of farmers. Furthermore, the model was qualitatively evaluated by subject experts against criteria of simplicity, comprehensiveness, exactness, generality and clarity.
The key finding of this study is the model developed to explore the ISB of farmers.
Thus, the model will be useful in developing valuable de insights to apply to user-centred agricultural ISs. The originality of this study relates to its demonstration of how existing models can be reconsidered and adapted based on related literature and then tested and presented as adapted models. The proposed model will be useful to promote informational studies in agriculture.
