Abstract
This study documented perceptions of extension educators and international graduate students of extension education in the United States toward what agricultural extension organizations in the Third World should fulfill from among the educational needs of rural people. Data were solicited from 96 extension educators and 128 international graduate students of extension education at 33 universities using a mailed questionnaire. Reliability, frequencies, t-tests, Spearman correlation coefficients, factor analysis, and analysis of variance were employed to analyze the data. Results indicated that both extension educators and international graduate students of extension education in the United States agreed that the agricultural extension organizations in the Third World should commit their resources to satisfy the educational needs of rural people regarding: (1) application of new inputs, varieties, and improved farm practices, (2) application of new and improved practices related to livestock production, (3) food storage, processing, and preservation, (4) knowledge and skills for family improvement, (5) civic skills, (6) supplementary skills for farm maintenance, and (7) farm business management.
