ABSTRACT

 The task of agricultural extension in Africa will for some time be mainly concerned with the transfer of agricultural technologies to farmers, This is because of the pressure on farmers to increase food production rapidly to match population increases and Agricultural Extension Services' belief that improved food production technologies do exist which, if adopted by the farmers, would significantly increase their food production from the present levels. Farmers' participation with agricultural extension agents was necessary to make them aware of improved maize production practices, and also to enhance their adoption of those practices. However , it did not really matter which extension participatory approach was used. This is because, although the two extension programmes studied (PPP and DAES) used different participatory approaches to deliver similar extension messages (improved maize production practices) , the proportion of farmers in each group that used the various improved maize production practices was not significantly different.
