The book provides new insights into the continuing debate over the extent to which public sector provides extension services in the new era of pluralistic extension especially in the developing world. It also addresses the key policy issue of how to increase the productivity and income of smallholder farmers through optimal complementarities between the public and private extension approaches. As such it makes interesting reading to both the policy makers and the academicians involved in agricultural extension and technology management.
