ORTIZ JIMENEZ, Bersaín et al. Level of technology adoption of small-scale tomato producers in the state of Oaxaca. Rev. Mex. Cienc. Agríc [online]. 2013, vol.4, n.3, pp.447-460. ISSN 2007-0934.

The aim of this research was to determine the level of adoption of technologies in the greenhouse production of tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum) and the impact on crop productivity. The transfer of technology was done through a farmer field school; the school sessions took place in the plots of the producers themselves. A directed selection method was used to choose the producers that attended the schools. Of 71 technology recommendations divulged through the farmer field schools, tomato growers adopted 46%. This meant better yields in the production of tomatoes and improved household incomes.

Keywords : greenhouse tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum); technology adoption; profitability.
