Abstract

In the study, extension services were examined through interpretation of data collected up to 1104 public and contracted extension workers. Turkish extension system is influenced by general and training-visit approaches which were employed in the past. The approaches employed are mainly directed to conventional production and yield increases using a top-down process and gives little place for human resources development and sustainable agriculture within Turkish extension system.
