Authors : G.N. Emah and B.I. Isife

Abstract: The study examined the rate of awareness of demonstration of recommended farm practices, identified the roles of extension personnel in promoting demonstration of recommended farm practices and ascertained the impact of factors affecting demonstration of recommended farm practices among farmers in Obio-Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State, Nigeria. One hundred and thirty farmers were randomly selected and interviewed using questionnaire instrument. Frequency counts, percentages and mean scores were employed for data analysis. Findings show that rate of awareness of demonstration of recommended farm practices was low for all the media of information used and that 5 out of 7 roles of extension personnel were most important in promoting recommended farm practices which means that though awareness and interest were created their impact was found to be most adverse among farmers. It was recommended that in order to impact significantly on demonstration of recommended farm practices among farmers, adequate logistics and staffing with appropriate enlightenment campaigns should be employed.
