MetadataShow full item record
This report presents the results of an investigation of the nature and patterns of agricultural extension services to women and their effectiveness in Zimbabwe. It is based on a detailed survey of Makonde district in Mashonaland West Province, focusing on the relationship of agricultural extension services to the various socio-demographic, resource structure, economic, rganizational, and perceptual features of women farmers. It also assesses the activities, practices and perceptions of agricultural extension workers and administrators as part of a broader attempt to evaluate agricultural extension policy within the framework of the Government's overall agricultural policy. The aim is to assist Government and non-governmental organisations providing related services to women to improve their extension services to women farmers.
