Extension needs of small-scale cane farmers in Trinidad



Extension needs of small-scale cane farmers in Trinidad



Extension Newsletter, Department of Agricultural Extension, University of the West Indies 16(2): 10-13, 21



Decline in cane production by farmers in Trinidad is a function not only of reduced acreages cultivated, but also of lower yields of cane per acre. Improvement of extension services to the farmer is one factor that can help to raise cane yields per acre, and thus produce the required tonnage on smaller acreages. The needs for extension and contract services were examined in a survey of 130 cane farmers conducted in July, August and September, 1984.
