How does the Lepcha family get its seed? The tasks of the agricultural extension service in the supply of production materials

The possible roles of the agricultural extension service in organising supplies of production materials such as seed and fertilizers is illustrated by the case study of an imaginary farm family in the Indian Himalayas. The provision of farm inputs involves the development of a saving and credit system and the organisation of production and marketing of materials from peasant or industrial sources.
