This paper describes two case studies in which farmers, as the result of group extensionprograms associated with adult education and action learning cycles, implicitly andexplicitly are held to have the responsibility for transferring group experiences to farmernetworks outside the immediate group. The case studies look at both community-based andcommodity-based programs. The discussion focuses on the potential difficulties for farmersand program organisers in following through on 'second generation' delivery. 'Extending thefarmer' has theoretical and practical implications for practitioners and educators alike.
