Today Agricultural Extension is at its cross age where the paradigm of its application shifts towards innovative application of decision, tools, methods and approaches. Agricultural Extension requires continuous renewal of its content, methods and approaches. So, we have to think not only in present context but also for the future to make the discipline more competitive and fruitful. We have to consider the expanding demand of information and diverse extension support for the changing situation to deal with the challenges. Development must be holistic in nature; not only crop production but also the wellbeing of the farmers must be look after.
