This paper describes two case studies in which farmers, as the result of group extension programs associated with adult education and action learning cycles, implicitly and explicitly are held to have the responsibility for transferring group learning to farmer networks outside the immediate group. The case studies look at both community-based and commodity-based programs. The discussion focuses on the potential difficulties for farmers and program organizers in following through on “second generation” delivery. “Extending the farmer” has theoretical and practical implications for practitioners and educators alike.
