Training and visit is an approach to agricultural extension work which has evolved over the past decade in response to the under-utilization of a generally inadequate resource of fieldworkers. It aims to enhance their effechveness, and thus agricultural productivity: this is done by the regular upgrading of their techmcal skills, by concentrating on a narrower range of tasks, and by a more frequent contact with farmers. Training and Visit Extension in Practice is a collection of papers published by ODI (the Overseas Development Inshtute) and edited by John Howell. It focuses on the role, management, and performance of agricultural extension services which use the T and V system, with particular reference to the impact of this system in Zimbabwe Somalia, Zambia and India. As a whole, the book reflects the work of members of ODI's Agricultural Administration (Research and Extension) Network, and emphasizes extension management questions that occured during the period 1982-1987. It is concluded with an overview by the editor which draws conclusions from the lessons of recent experience on how to make agricultural extension effective, and completed by a comprehensive bibliography.
