ABSTRACT

 

The study analysed the changes in behaviour and social status of project-farmers before and after their involvement in the extension activities of the Ondo and Enugu States’ Agricultural Development Projects/Programmes (ADPs).  Data were collected through the use of structured interview schedule.  Chi-Square statistic (p < 0.05) was used in analysing the data.  The findings revealed that the two ADPs brought about significant changes in the knowledge, attitude, aspiration and social statuses of the project-farmers in Ondo and Enugu States.  It was concluded that the success or failure of an ADP could be evaluated through the use of social and behavioural indicators.

Keywords: behaviour, social-status, perceived, participating-farmers, change
