Abstract: Productive-Innovative Model (MPI) is exposed to increasing corn yields in dry land. Its epistemic frame is crop management, rationalized in the dialogue of knowledge and biomimicry. Evaluates the use of innovations in the management of corn, identifies and groups the "maiceros" for their yields and raise the technological transfer pattern efficient to increase household food security. It was validated in Cohetzala and San Nicolas de los Ranchos, Puebla-Mexico where it was found that, corn converge in managing radical and progressive innovations in which prevail the second, presenting a statistical relationship with the performance, almost a third of producers are efficient, the handling of which is articulated to the agro-ecological approach, 15 and 57% of the corn growers of Cohetzala and San Nicolas have food security and if producers of low and medium income implement the MP-I, it would increase to 27 and 81% in Cohetzala and San Nicolas respectively.
