The transfer of technologies in the productive chains of the agricultural sector plays a key role in
achieving optimal levels of productivity and competitiveness in local, regional and international markets. The
developments in the Internet of Things (IoT) have contributed to better management of soil, nutrients, water,
pests and to implement methods of collection, storage, transformation and transport of agricultural products
to the market. However, the existence of technology by itself does not guarantee its impact on the productivity
or competitiveness of a sector, a region or a country which shows a gap between the development of this type
of technology and the capacity of adoption by the agricultural producers. The transfer of technology is a process
that involves agents interacting in a network under an institutional infrastructure such as generation, diffusion
and use of technology. It can also be the economic, legal, cultural and social factors that affect the decision to
adopt it or not a technology. The purpose of this review is to provide elements for the understanding of the
technology transfer processes in productive chains from an approach based on behavioral patterns. These
patterns emerge in a dynamic network of agents involved in technological innovation systems. The results of
this study could potentially boost the design of strategies in science, technology and innovation policies at a
national level.
