Based on the identification of four main gaps in extension services in terms of gender and nutrition integration, INGENAES activities can be divided into the following action areas: Build more robust, gender-responsive, and nutrition-sensitive institutions, projects, and. AGRICULTURAL POLICY IN PERSPECTIVE. The development of agriculture in South Africa is often viewed solely as the technical advance, in this century particularly, of large-scale commercial farming specialising in crop and animal production according to the prevailing natural resources and climatic conditions, and taking advantage of both abundant low-cost labour and opportunities for.

      Given the large genetic variation in their ability to harvest atmospheric nitrogen, there is a significant opportunity to increase the favorable effects of pulses on farming systems [3] by breeding cultivars with high nitrogen-fixing capacity. Climate change creates new challenges for pulse production.

      We suggest the reorientation of agricultural higher education in light of some emerging issues in the context of globalization, such as food security, diversification, sustainability of ecosystems, and agribusiness. These issues will pose challenges to future agricultural scientists, particularly in the developing countries. The curriculum of agricultural higher education needs to be made more Cited by: 1. Traditionally, research, extension and adoption of innovations have been understood as a pipeline, where researchers develop innovations, extension workers spread them and farmers adopt or reject them. This mental model of innovation is limited for a number of reasons and many of its limitations are highlighted in different papers of this volume.

Rapid reconnaissance surveys or "sondeos", a well known component of farming systems methodology, were developed to help understand farmers and their conditions.

Agbamu 1 INTRODUCTION The concept of linkage implies the communication and working relationship established between two or more organisations pursuing commonly shared objectives in order to have regular contact and improved productivity. Over the past sixty years, Asian countries have gone through rapid agricultural transformations helping to lift broader economic development.

The change has differed in nature and speed across countries of the region. In much of East and Southeast Asia, agricultural productivity growth facilitated labour exit and savings transfers, which helped jump-start industrial growth and urbanization.The third chapter gives an account of the various extension models, approaches and methods that have been tried out in developing countries and the experiences.

The chapter concludes with the transition being made to agricultural innovation systems from Research & Extension systems and highlights the role of extension services in this context.ROMANIAN AGRICULTURAL RESEARCH AND EXTENSION SYSTEMS AND THEIR LINKAGES Staicu Mara Monica – National Agency for Agricultural Advisory Macedonia - - Building Partnerships for Technology Generation, Assessment and Sharing among West Balkan countries Skopje, TFYR of Macedonia, 27 to 29 June
