ABSTRACT

The study was carried out to determine the contributions of agricultural extension workers in promoting sustainable agricultural development among farmers in Kaduna State, Nigeria. Six specific objectives were raised. Descriptive survey research design was adopted. The population of farmers in the three senatorial districts were 4,056 and sample size of 333, were randomly selected. Structured questionnaire were used to collect data. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to determine the responses of farmers. The result reveals that 59.5 percent of the respondents are between the ages of 20 to 34 years, about 58% of farmers are male, and less than 70% are married. Majority of the farmers are educated (75%). Agricultural Extension Workers contributed through the control of erosion in the farm land, that farmers were influenced by Agricultural Extension Workers by disinfecting their store houses against pest and diseases before storage with 67% of the respondents agreed to the statement. There was significant difference in the opinions of farmers on the contribution of Agricultural Extension Workers on soil and water management practices among farmers in promoting sustainable agricultural development in Kaduna State having 51% disagreed to the stated statement. But the differences were traced to Northern and Central districts for five items and one to Northern and southern districts. In view of the findings, it was concluded that agricultural extension workers have influenced farmers positively (67%), which led to better management of soil, water, animal production practices and others. It was recommended that Agricultural Extension Workers should organize public enlightenment campaign on soil and water management to create more awareness among rural farmers.

Agricultural extension workers teach farmers about marketing and help farm groups organize both buying and selling cooperative. Extension workers help farmers grow crops, home owners plan and maintain their homes, and children learn skills to become tomorrow's leaders.

Extension teaching is the process through which the extension workers stimulate interest in the learning more by using various teaching methods, tools and techniques to improve the situation.
