Abstract
As Greece enters the European Union Market, the agricultural industry must offer quality products to other countries if they are to expand the demand for their products. Extension agents have a role in helping farmers to produce and market quality products, but other demands on their time decrease the effectiveness of their work. This study surveyed a sample of extension agents to determine their perceptions of effectiveness and problems encountered. Findings indicated that formal educational training is lacking and non-work related assignments hinder their work. Recommendations focused upon offering a formal professional education program and in-service education program, and agents utilizing those extension methods they find effective.
