Format: Peer-reviewed article
Type: Research — Case studies
Experience level of reader: Fundamental
Annotation: Innovations must be adopted in order to be truly successful. In the case of precision dairy farming, adaptation has been lower than expected. The challenge is for public and private entities to collaborate throughout the phases of initiation, implementation, and adaptation. This paper examined the roles of participants and their success with knowledge transfer.
This article uses the Commercial Devices and Services version of the NtK Model
(2) Technological innovation systems (TIS) incorporate the
actors and rules influencing the speed and direction of change in a
specific technological area. The TIS approach emphasizes the
interplay of all relevant actors.
