Heuristic techniques refine research information for stakeholders to make informed decisions. These techiques are rules of simplifiying information processing and decision-making, which play an important role in converting scientific knowledge into practice. This process of finding adequate answers through simple procedures follows two systems: System 1 for daily decision-making generally sed by farmers, and System 2 for making evidence-baded decisions of scientists and heads of organizations, among others.
