FLDs - Seeing is Believing

One of the major functions of Agricultural Scientists and Extension workers is disseminating useful and practical information obtained through research to farmers.

The on-farm FLDs serve as one of the most effective Extension Education tools ever developed for transfer of technology.

This concept is popularly known as "seeing is believing." And the farmers who observe FLDs on the latest techniques, practices and varieties and then apply them to their own particular situations will become future Extension leaders.
