Innovación en el cultivo de quinua en Bolivia

efectos de la interacción social y de las capacidades de absorción de los pequeños productores

This report analyzes the relationship between the adoption of innovation packages in quinoa cultivation and absorptive capabilities in resource poor farming communities in four micro-regions of the Bolivian Altiplano. The innovation packages studied consist of: the use of special seeders (SATIRI), seeding of improved varieties, application of special pest and disease control measures, application of animal manure, introducing “singing” tapes against birds, use of special baskets for seeding, special harvesting techniques (sickle cut), an application new threshing technology. These components of innovation packages have been used to varying degrees with different channels of information exchange and training methods, resulting in various levels of benefit to the producers.” — from Executive summary in English
