Agriculture and all other farm activities are based on some working principles, knowledge of which is necessary for an extension agent. Now what does principle means? A principle is a statement of policy to guide our decision and action in a consistent manner. To do so all our field functionaries and farmers need to be trained up in a regular basis. This is a part of extension education. The basic objective of departmental extension education is the expression of the ends towards which our efforts are directed. An objective means a direction of movement. Before starting any programme, its objectives must be clearly stated so that one knows about the final goal and what is to be achieved.
