The effectiveness of an extension service relies on the knowledge and communication skills of the field staff who lead discussions with farmers in order to help them identify their own problems and train them in the available solutions. Communication in extension plays an important role in technology transfer, however, many field extension workers are poorly trained in this particular area and also in the development of educational materials.

The Training and Visit (T&V) system of management was introduced in Kenya by the World Bank in 1982 as a pilot, which became effective in 1991. The two Bank Extension Projects that supported the T&V system sought to increase agricultural productivity and develop the institutions of the extension service. Whether the extension approach is effective or not became a subject for debate. The costs appear to be high and the impact on agricultural production low.
