SANTOS CHAVEZ, Víctor Manuel; ALVAREZ MACIAS, Adolfo; PEREZ GACHUZ, Felipe  e  PEREZ SOSA, Leonardo. Mexican rural extensionism: conjunctural analysis with a public policy approach. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2019, vol.10, n.1, pp.63-77. ISSN 2007-0934.

With the objective of contributing to the knowledge of the results of the rural extension public policy in Mexico, the degree of adoption of new technologies and capacity development among the beneficiaries was analyzed according to different attributes and characteristics of their production units. The 2014 national survey of beneficiaries of the monitoring and evaluation system of the extension and productive innovation component was used, which collected information in ten states of the republic and its sample size amounted to 1 062 questionnaires. The rate of adoption of new technologies and capacity development was calculated and it was found that -in contrast to the modernizing paradigm on which the national extension policy is based- small producers are not the priority population for a results-oriented policy, but rather those with average income and productive assets. Statistically significant differences were found between the average value of the index and variables such as sex, age, schooling, area and investment in assets of the production unit, this allows to establish specific strategies to promote a public policy of differentiated extension, focused on empirical evidence to production unit level.

Palavras-chave : adoption of technologies; extension agents; extension component and productive innovation; rural innovation.
