Coorientation in Agricultural Development: The Interrelationship between Farmers, Change Agents and Scientists.
Groot, Hans C.
The role of the agricultural extension worker as intermediary between farmer and scientist is studied using the Chaffee and McLeod coorientation model. It is found that the extension workers' cognitions fall between those of farmers and scientists in terms of agreement, understanding, congruency, and accuracy, as predicted. The subjects in the study were 142 rice farmers, 20 extension workers, and six plant breeders in the Philippines. Eleven tables supplement the text. (MS)
