Abstract: This study aimed to identify if it is possible, merely through opinion leaders, to disseminate information in irrigation systems. System Dynamics, Agent-Based Modeling, and Social Network Analysis approaches were used for the construction of a hybrid simulation model. An analysis of the characteristics and structural aspects of social networks of the Gorutuba Irrigation Perimeter, in the northern semiarid region of Minas Gerais, was performed. It was observed that the most central agents are in key positions for the flow of information or on compulsory routes for their spread, thus allowing them to filter, retain, or even distort the produced information. The results showed that policies to improve the flow of information to increase resilience of such systems should be based on targeting leading actors.
