Efficiency of agricultural extension in technology transfer and income generation before and after the Green Revolution in India



Efficiency of agricultural extension in technology transfer and income generation before and after the Green Revolution in India



Indian Journal of Agricultural Economics 34(4): 1-11



The study examines the role that extension has historically played in transferring a given technology and increasing farm income in a state, and compares its effectiveness among states with comparable technologies and within each state over time. Areas which are relatively deficient in extension services are identified and suitable policy measures are suggested. The effectiveness of agricultural extension is examined in an ex post manner, using multiple regression as the analytical tool.
