Agricultural extensions systems were introduced in Uganda by the colonial administration, in the early twentieth century. It has been a key part of Uganda?s agricultural development strategy, albeit with changes and innovations in approaches, institutional arrangements, methods, and strategies. There has been a dearth documented information on the subject, and this study now provides a systematic documentation and analysis of these changes and innovations, with a view to drawing lessons to inform theory and practice, and to avoid repetition of past mistakes. The book is organised in three parts: Uganda?s Experiences with a Privatised contract Farmer-owned Extention Approach; Innovative Extension Methodologies; and Training and Capacity Development for Innovation and Reform in Agricultural Extension. Margaret Najjingo Mangheni is a senior lecturer in the Department of Agricultural Extension/Education at Makerere University. The contributors to the book have served in agricultural extension education as educators, managers and field practitioners, in Uganda and elsewhere.
