LANDINI, Fernando. Conception of rural extension in 10 Latin American countries. Andamios [online]. 2016, vol.13, n.30, pp.211-236. ISSN 1870-0063.

There are different models to conceive rural extension. In order to describe the conceptions of rural extension supported by rural extensionists working in ten different Latin American countries, a survey was conducted. The sample was non-probabilistic, incidental (n=589). The conception of rural extension of the surveyed extensionists is mainly supported in the transfer of technology model, with important differences among the different samples. The Uruguayan sample features a dialogical model. In no sample appeared ideas related to local/territorial development or to innovation systems approach. Actions towards consciously and critically choosing the extension model to be implemented are recommended.

Keywords : Rural extension; rural development; Latin America; transfer of technology model; dialogical model.
