Abstract
Starting with data obtained from human-subject experiments to investigate farmers' responses to a conservation incentive scheme, we derive a cognitive model of the farmers' decision-making behaviour, and implement this model within an agent-based simulation of farmers interacting via different types of social network. We find that the outcome of the scheme in early time periods is improved by providing more information to farmers. However, changing the structure of the social network by which the information is provided has no effect.
