In Colombia the agricultural sector, particularly family farming or self-sufficiency, faces a number of challenges to increase productivity and sustainability. The knowledge management and boosting innovations are a valuable strategy to solve the problems of the sector. However, this management is influenced by the territorial context that includes social, political, ecological, economic and cultural aspects of the regions, causing large differences between innovation processes at regional level. Consider innovation as a system in a territorial area and assess its progress in the context of a production system to generate more precise strategies for formulating policies that reorient and direct incentives to agents so that a change is generated in culture technique that impacts on crop productivity.

Keywords : knowledge management; social appropriation of knowledge; technical culture; territory.
