CBEAR creates and applies knowledge from the behavioral sciences to better understand how and why people make decisions. This research will ultimately help the USDA make programs better for farmers. CBEAR researchers conduct research in a variety of fields at a number of institutions. Research is ongoing, though some of our research has been published in academic publications.
