Abstract:

Public agricultural extension system is one of the largest knowledge and information dissemination institution. In the last 15 years, agricultural production has stagnated and this calls for a system based inter-disciplinary holistic approach not only to develop ecologically sound technologies for different areas, but also to facilitate their utilization at gross root level. Extension approach is like doctrine for the system, which informs, stimulates and guides such aspects of the system as its structure, its leadership, its program, its resources and its linkages. Various extension approaches completed successfully by giving satisfactory results in past to improve the farmers knowledge regarding newly developed agricultural technologies. Some of them are continuously running in present along with newly developed extension approaches and requires little modifications in future to increase the agricultural potential of country. The use of innovative extension approaches to increase coverage is, therefore, a concern for all involved in agriculture extension and advisory services. Participatory, partnership of government and non-government organizations (NGO’s), farmer’s cooperative approaches are running successfully in present. In the future, the social media, agricultural education, village panchayats, off-line initiation of ICT could be helpful for effective extension of agricultural information to the grass-root level. Cost recovery approach and sharing cropping approach should be followed at large level.
