description Innovation, production and marketing of a product results from the interaction between a variety of actors. Thus, the Hub extension model of the governmental program MasAgro seeks to be a space in which maize farmers, extensionists, suppliers of inputs, government, teaching and research institutions, among others, interact with each other to generate individual and collective well-being through innovation. The objective of this work was to analyze the relational structures within the Hubs. To this effect, direct interviews were applied to 457 actors from 10 agroecological regions that make up the Hubs of the maize system in Mexico. The indicators of density, closeness, transitivity and diversity of relationships were measured in two moments of analysis: baseline and final line, through the methodology of analysis of social networks. A "t" test of related samples revealed that for the first three indicators there is a statistically significant difference between moments analyzed (p <0.05), which indicates that the interaction between the actors has been managed in the Hub, placing it as a space in which local structure has been generated and relational capital has been maintained, bases of social capital necessary for the development of innovation processes in the rural sector. These findings may serve program managers and policy makers as a complementary tool for evaluating intervention strategies in the sector.

La innovación, producción y comercialización de un producto resulta de la interacción entre una diversidad de actores. Así, el modelo de extensión Hub del programa gubernamental MasAgro busca ser un espacio en el que agricultores, extensionistas, proveedores de insumos, instituciones gubernamentales y de enseñanza e investigación, entre otros, interactúen entre sí con el fin de generar bienestar individual y colectivo a través de la innovación. El objetivo de este trabajo fue analizar las estructuras relacionales dentro de los Hubs. Para tal efecto, se aplicaron entrevistas directas a 457 actores de 10 regiones agroecológicas que conforman los Hubs del sistema maíz en México. Se midieron los indicadores de densidad, cercanía, transitividad y diversidad de relaciones en dos momentos de análisis: línea base y línea final, mediante la metodología de análisis de redes sociales. Una prueba “t” de muestras relacionadas reveló que para los tres primeros indicadores existe diferencia estadística significativa entre momentos analizados (p<0,05), lo que indican que en el Hub se ha gestionado la interacción entre los actores, ubicándolo como un espacio en el que se ha generado estructura local y se ha mantenido el capital relacional, bases del capital social necesario para el desarrollo de procesos de innovación en el sector rural. Estos hallazgos pueden servir a responsables de programas y diseñadores de políticas como una herramienta complementaria de evaluación de estrategias de intervención en el sector. 2017 info:eu-repo/semantics/article info:eu-repo/semantics/publishedVersion http://revistacta.agrosavia.co/index.php/revista/article/view/609 10.21930/rcta.vol19_num1_art:609 http://hdl.handle.net/20.500.12324/35242 reponame:Biblioteca Digital Agropecuaria de Colombia repourl:https://repository.agrosavia.co instname:Corporación colombiana de investigación agropecuaria AGROSAVIA spa http://revistacta.agrosavia.co/index.php/revista/article/view/609/497 Derechos de autor 2017 Corpoica Ciencia y Tecnología Agropecuaria https://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/4.0/deed.es application/pdf Corporación Colombiana de Investigación Agropecuaria (Agrosavia) Ciencia y Tecnología Agropecuaria; Vol 19 No 1 (2018) Ciencia y Tecnología Agropecuaria; Vol. 19 Núm. 1 (2018) revista Corpoica Ciência e Tecnologia Agropecuária; v. 19 n. 1 (2018) 2500-5308 0122-8706 10.21930/rcta.vol19-num1
