Participatory approach in agricultural extension services delivery has long been recognized by all stake- holders in the country's agricultural system. The actors involved in the process - farmers, extension staff, researchers and input providers - have unique roles to play and tasks to perform. However, there is need to harmonize these roles and tasks through participatory planning and decision making processes. ARMTI's observation shows that participatory skills and tools required by different actors in the field are still inadequate, hence the need to mount this training programme.
