In a predominantly agrarian economy, economic growth is driven by increases in agricultural productivity and, therefore, depends on the availability of natural resources, agricultural technology, and human resources. These are depicted as potential resources at the bottom of Figure of my diffusion book, during the s, an explosion occurred in the number of diffusion investigations that were conducted in the devel-oping nations of Latin America, Africa, and Asia. It was realized that the classical diffusion model could be usefully applied to the process of socioeconomic development. In fact, the diffusion approach was a.

While adoption is the decision by an individual producer to use a new technology at a given moment, diffusion is the aggregate measure of adoption decisions.

Early studies of diffusion were conducted by sociologists. Rogers () measured technology usage as a fraction of farmers that had adopted a certain technology at a given point in time.
