Redesigning IT systems for specific user groups encompasses a lot of effort with respect to analysing and understanding user behaviour. The goal of this paper is to provide insights into patterns of behaviour of agricultural users, during the usage of a decision support system called OPTIRas (TM). This system aids agricultural users in their cultivar selection activities. We analyse logs resulting from OPTIRas (TM), and we get insights into user's navigational patterns. We claim that the results of our analysis can be used to support the redesign of decision support systems in order to address specific agricultural users' characteristics.
