Agricultural extension in India (Inglês)

This paper tells the story of the Bank's involvement in the development of agriculture extension in India, starting in 1977 and up to the present time. The report analyzes past investments and achievements, strengths and weaknesses of ongoing extension projects, the future challenges to be faced and prospects for future Bank support. It is a story of gradual, but remarkable, institutional change and strengthening on a very large scale. Few Bank-supported programs can have reached so many farmer beneficiaries in a sustained manner on the scale of the sub-continent of India. The paper provides a useful case-study for the student of extension and for those involved in the preparation and design of extension projects for which the Indian experience may provide some valuable lessons.
