Studies In Agricultural Extension And Management
The desired level of success in working with the farmers may be attained by applying the results of research in extension work. The research studies contained in this book shall help the institution and organisation working with the farmers to conduct their extension and promotional programmes more effectively. Credit can generate accelerated economic growth only when the amounts taken as loan are repaid in time. Recovery of bank loans is not a matter of chance. The first study has identified four variables which significantly discriminate between the regular and defaulter credit users. The banking and financial institutions can improve their recovery of farm loans by applying the results of research in their methods of working. To increase crop production on a sustained basis, it is essential to increase the level of fertiliser use by the farmers. The second study has identified some important variables promotion more effective For a large and increasing population, it is most essential to increase productivity of crops on a sustained basis. The third study gives clear indication on how this can be done. The need for research findings in extending technologies other than crop production is urgently felt. The fourth study indicates how the adoption of recommended species of fish in composite fish culture can be increased. Development of management ability of the farmers is a crucial need of the day. The fifty study has identified the management attributes of farmers as related to profitability in farming. The studies contained in this book indicate that there is some universality in elements which the extension workers may use, irrespective of the technology the farmers are pursuing. The findings have implications for India and other developing countries as well. The teachers, students and research scholars shall be benefited by the methodology and analyses used and the new scales and tests developed in these studies.
