The objectives of our International Extension programs are to work with partners in other countries to:
- increase agricultural productivity and profitability
- improve the knowledge and management skills of farmers
- develop more effective agricultural extension programs
- evaluate the economic performance of different extension systems
Extension systems are being developed so that educational institutions are more responsive to the demands of agricultural communities and better able to provide up-to-date information and technologies that have practical application. The improvement of information networks and distance education programs enable people working in rural areas to have better access to all types of information on markets and production.
