Abstract: The main objective of this research was to study factors that should be taken into consideration while conducting research on agricultural technology for utilisation in community development. The sample consisted of 90 agricultural technology researchers from all over the country. Questionnaires were used as the research tool for data collection to be mailed directly to those units of analysis together with a self-addressed envelope. Outstanding research outcomes were as follows: researchers with and without the experience on the agricultural technology utilisation had different viewpoints toward the community's absorptive capacity with the significance of 0.05 for four factors, i.e., knowledge acquisition by means of the support from public organisations/institution, viewpoint toward the community's agricultural technology selection in consideration of economic benefits, viewpoint toward the technology selection in consideration of the disseminated technology helping reduce work steps and time and viewpoint toward the community's learning level in consideration of the number of learning sources in the community.
