Acknowledgement

The most significant contribution to this manual has been made by farmers who have educated extension workers about the process of change. Andrea Eykyn and Julia Simmons are the technicians who produced the text. Sue Cass executed the illustrations.

We also learned from a host of extension workers with whom we've worked in various settings. These include Tom Mester, Peter Menard, Dan Nagengast, David Leonard, David Yohalem and our counterparts overseas.

This manual is based in part on the extensive Agricultural Program manuals produced by Basico, Inc. for Peace Corps in 1970, and on our experience training numerous Peace Corps volunteers in agricultural extension.

Thanks also to Donna Frelick, Calvina Dupre and Franklin Moore for support and advice.
