JUAN PATRICIO, Molina. Territorial perspective of agricultural extension policies in Colombia. Agron. colomb. [online]. 2010, vol.28, n.3, pp. 456-463. ISSN 0120-9965.
This article presents a historic perspective of agricultural extension in Colombia and highlights its scope in relationship to regional development. Four periods are identified, which show that policies have evolved towards a territorial and decentralized agricultural extension. However, this trend has not been consolidated in recent years. It is suggested that Colombia should recover an approach of agricultural extension that integrates the productive dimension with a territorial perspective.
