TOT models and roles of NGOs in TOT

Models of transfer of technology

Top-down-model (Conventional model)

Salient features

-       Farmers act as passive recipients of technologies

-       No contact between farmers and scientists

-       Extension plays the role to persuade the farmers to adopt new technologies

In this model, the client’s views and problems are not given due importance which is an inherent problem of this model.
