This study examined strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats within the extension
service delivery in Kaduna State, Nigeria. The total population (130) of extension agents was
used for the study. A structured questionnaire and focus group discussion schedule were used
to elicit information. Percentages, and mean were used to analyse the data collected. The
findings showed Insecurity, high farmer-to-extension agent ratio and inadequate training
facilities as challenging factors that affect extension service delivery. The study concluded that
extension service delivery was highly ineffective because of the low extension-farmer ratio
and low motivation among the agents. It is recommended that the government employ more
extension agents to reduce the possible imbalance in extension service delivery to farmers.
