A network with a local knowledge base and supporting partners is very important to technological change in agriculture. Learning by doing, reflecting, and accommodating is an effective tool for social learning. With adaptive management techniques, researchers evaluate meaningful components of a landscape system, such as the ecological, economic, and organizational components of a complex system. Technology transfer can be more effective when pursued through adaptive management techniques, opposed to a linear invention and innovation process, because it confronts challenging cross-scale issues in complex adaptive systems through the use of participatory processes, active learning, and knowledge networks.
