VARGAS-CANALES, Juan Manuel et al. Efficiency of small enterprises of protected agriculture in the adoption of innovations in Mexico. estud.gerenc. [online]. 2018, vol.34, n.146, pp.52-62. ISSN 0123-5923.

The aim of this research was to identify the factors that influence the efficiency in the adoption of innovations in protected agricultural systems. For the study of these factors, a hierarchical cluster analysis was performed in which three clusters were obtained that showed clearly differentiated behavior. To identify the differences between groups, a variance analysis and a chi-square test was performed. The results show that efficiency in the adoption of innovations is related to the producer’s schooling, his experience, and access to extension services. Derived from the above, it is important to promote greater articulation among producers, promote an integral extensionism capable of promoting collective development and interactions that are developed and evolved in the territories.

Keywords : adoption of innovations; index; extension services; technology transfer.
