GARCIA-SANCHEZ, Edgar Iván; VARGAS-CANALES, Juan Manuel; PALACIOS-RANGEL, María Isabel  and  AGUILAR-AVILA, Jorge. The Innovation System as an Analytical Framework for Protected Agriculture in the Mexican Central Region. Cuad. Desarro. Rural [online]. 2018, vol.15, n.81, pp.93-116. ISSN 0122-1450.

This research aims to analyze the protected agriculture in Mexico by using as an analytical framework the agricultural innovation system. The studied regions included Puebla, Tlaxcala and Hidalgo. The results indicate that these three regions have few cases of adopted innovations and that the innovation systems have a weak articulation as well as a low profitability trend. To consolidate the protected agriculture as an alternative in the rural development area, it is necessary to implement projects intended to strengthen innovation systems that consider the territorial characteristics.

Keywords : innovation adoption; profitability analysis; innovation systems; technological levelf.
