Extension workers, small-scale farmers, and agricultural research: a case study in Kabwe Rural, Central Province, Zambia



Extension workers, small-scale farmers, and agricultural research: a case study in Kabwe Rural, Central Province, Zambia



Discussion Paper, Agricultural Administration Network, Agricultural Administration Unit, Overseas Development Institute, UK (15): 35



The study examines the way in which the extension services operate at local level so that the Adaptive Research Planning Team, a farming systems research team based in Central Province, could improve the way in which it worked with the local extension service during the various stages of adaptive research, namely survey work, farmer selection, management of farm verification trials, demonstrations, and the release of technical recommendations.
