The media are effective partners in agricultural development. With the limited personnel we have in our agency, they may serve as efficient extension officers disseminating technology information updates using the quad media.

In our agency, we have organized the media. These media people are given the opportunity to travel to other places at the expense of the office to observe the best agricultural practices and disseminate these best practices in our locality.

Knowledge is power and the media multiplies knowledge from researchers to rural farmers. Through the media, rural people gain knowledge, apply the knowledge practically in the field, and increase the output of their fields.
