For instance, discussing the dairy production with someone on a regular basis leads to more efficient farms. When it comes to the farmer managerial capacity (the managerial capacity study), the results show that the more successful farmers have more intrinsic values, have a high degree of internal locus of control, participate in study circles and have an education in agriculture. Interestingly, the results also showed that farmers who believe that they are better than they really are, have lower levels of efficiency.

However, this approach would be very time consuming and thus expensive both for the researcher and the farmers. Further, the fact that people perceive words such as "good" or "bad" differently will still remain. As a consequence, given the time and budget constraints that everyone doing research is subjected to, the dataset used in this research project is satisfactory. 6. A SYNTHESIS OF THE EMPIRICAL FINDINGS A convenient way to synthesize the different studies that constitute the research project presented in this chapter is to start at a broad level and subsequently refine and detail the analysis.
