Interactions with organizations in the agricultural sector show that most of them have little returns from their investments in training. Two major reasons account for the low returns, first is the failure to analyse training needs as a basis for giving training while the second is the faulty design and inappropriate material development. These situations are traceable to low capability in identifying training needs and developing content and materials that facilitate effective learning.
