Development of agriculture is receiving considerable attention nowadays, especially in the developing countries. With increased emphasis on agricultural development, numerous publications and writings focusing on overall strategies and policies for helping agriculture to develop, or emphasizing on various specific and socio-economic and technical aspects have appeared. It is now realized that in order to accelerate the pace of transforming traditional agriculture, new farm inputs, technological innovations and their diffusion among farmers must be stepped up. Also, institution building is now recognized as important for rapid agricultural development. It requires making present organizations more effective and creating new ones, in order to respond to the ever increasing and changing requirements of the agricultural sector.
