Challenges of the Nigerian agricultural extension of the 21st century

M.C. Madukwe, A.C. Anyanwu

Abstract


Meaningful agricultural development in any society largely hinges on the Extension System in place. The developed economics such as the United States of America have evolved, over time, highly workable extension systems. In spite of this, extension is seen as a dynamic process which requires regular modifications in order to make it relevant in a constantly changing technological world. In Nigeria, much of our extension activities are borrowed from alien technologies, and there are lots of deficiencies. There is need to get Extension going in order to attempt to catch up in the next century.
