Agr. Extension Units
Agr. Extension Units

There are (38) operated extension units distributed all over the district of WB. They render extension services by (65) extension officers. Their areas of specializations are mainly plant and animal production.

The extension units" premises are usually one office-room given, in most cases, by villages and towns" local authorities they serve, with almost no office or field equipments. Approximately (269) villages are served by the extension units in all WB districts. Each extension unit renders its extension services to a cluster of surrounding villages. Due to lack of means of transport rendering extension services became restricted only to the village where the extension unit is located.

The extension units were created before the second intifada and their effectiveness in providing extension services clearly noticed during the second Intifada as a good response to the Israeli"s policy of severe roads" closure and restricted mobility, more specifically, between main cities and their surrounding rural areas. Due to a set of organizational and financial constraints the extension units are unable to provide effective extension services as should be, which pose a big question on their performance and existence. Table (2.4.4) present detailed information on the operated agricultural extension units. For further information please follow the link below:
