Agricultural technology development, agricultural extension and applied social research



Agricultural technology development, agricultural extension and applied social research



Sociologia Ruralis 30(3/4): 323-335



Rural sociologists and social anthropologists have studied the operations of formal and informal agricultural research and extension systems for decades. The practical role that they might play in the design and management of such systems remains poorly defined, however. This paper chronologically reviews the interpretations that sociologists and anthropologists have brought to agricultural technology development and dissemination and relates these to the dominant paradigms of their eras.
