Successful agricultural extension: its dependence upon other aspects of agricultural development. The case of public sector extension in North-east Africa



Successful agricultural extension: its dependence upon other aspects of agricultural development. The case of public sector extension in North-east Africa



Agricultural extension worldwide: 75-88



The paper clarifies how successful agricultural extension is dependent upon: (1) an agricultural research network with links to extension; (2) both credit and input supply systems; (3) policies that provide farmer incentive structure; and (4) effective use of government and staff. It notes that agricultural extension programmes are designed in constrained environments, making the context ultimately more important than any particular type of system.
