The endeavour of the agricultural extension program is to transfer technology from the laboratories to the farmers and food producers working in the fields. Training in extension programs are given to suitable graduates, so that the fruits of technology development can be passed on to our fields and the agricultural produce could be maximized. It is for graduates of such programs to come up with innovative methods and practices that can be very well adopted by the farm hands. This way the extension program looks forward to building the capacity of farmers by transferring the latest technology to them. It is through many such extension programs in agriculture that many of the innovations take place and thus helping in the modernization of the agricultural sector. The program is a useful one for those intending to go for research.
