Across the interface: non formal agricultural education and the scope for innovation at the formal/non-formal interface



Bulletin University of Reading Agricultural Extension and Rural Development Department 29: 7-15



Agricultural education is a highly complex discipline. The formal sector is concerned with the long-term training of skilled manpower to service the agricultural industry through extension, research, teaching and commerce, as well as the 'professional' training of farmers, managers and skilled workers. Non-formal rural education encompasses a broad range of activities which provide specific types of learning to specific sub groups outside the formal sector.
