Description :
The main aim of the work described here was to investigate knowledge transfer to farms, as well as to analyse the levels of knowledge present as this relates to farm performance. Possible inefficiency of knowledge utilisation was investigated at the levels of the individual farm, the gmina (commune – unit of local government administration in Poland) and the region. It emerged from this that the performance of farms was closely related to level of knowledge, with results offering a basis for the elaboration of different models for knowledge transfer in agriculture. Specifically, the three models distinguished in relation to the path of information flow are peer to peer,global information or direct from supplier.
