Abstract: "The article shows that the quality of advisory services can be improved through greater participation of farmers in financing and controlling extension and that the state still has an important, though changing, role. Many of the principles emerging from the German case are applicable in transitional and less industrialised countries. However, appropriate strategies need to be locally defined."
