Summary

The basic philosophy of agricultural extension was established in the more highly developed countries over the past century. Newly formed nations, the rural population of which formerly maintained a subsistence agriculture with limited industry, found it essential to establish a better-balanced economy. This led to a variety of rural services and institutions, including agricultural extension service. Although the basic principles have evolved mostly in the more advanced countries, much of the material included in this publication was prepared by experts working in the developing countries and found to be effective there. Contents include sections on the meaning of extension, extension programs, extension teaching, extension administration and operation, international cooperation and relations, and a bibliography. The primary audience to which this publication is directed is the professional field extension worker and supporting staff of specialists and administrators responsible for the effective operation of extension work in each country. Personnel in departments of extension education may also find it of value in the preservice training of future extension workers. In addition, government officials responsible for national economic and social policy may obtain a clearer understanding of the role of agricultural extension in national development. (MF)
