Abstract: The current world business environment is characterized by increasing uncertainties, complexities, andrisks, which require agri-food supply chain (AFSC) managers to respond and act quickly in a contextfull of instability and unpredictability. Increasing pressure placed on AFSC managers intensifies theneed to combine knowledge management (KM) and decision support that rapidly overcome knowledgeboundaries. It has been recognized that the research issue related to the knowledge mobilization crossingboundaries in the AFSC needs to be addressed. This paper investigates knowledge boundaries andboundary-spanning mechanisms by collecting data from experienced AFSC practitioners. Empiricalresults verify that knowledge boundaries such as syntactic boundaries, semantic boundaries, andpragmatic boundaries could be effectively tackled by four specific boundary-spanning mechanisms:boundary spanners, boundary objects, boundary practices, and boundary discourses.
