Social Researcher

Dr. Kuehne was the principal researcher involved in the development of the ADOPT tool.

Much of his past research has focused on understanding the influences on farmers’ decision making other than a simple assumption of profit maximisation. He has conducted research into farmers’ beliefs about climate change and how those beliefs influence their actions. He has worked with farmers in the broadacre grains, cotton, wine, horticulture, and dairy industries. His research has often involved disaffected and dispirited populations facing turbulent periods of significant change resulting from collapses in commodity prices, government reforms, or changing societal expectations.
