Abstract

The main objective of the study is to examine the impact of agricultural extension in the development of Eritrean agriculture and minimizing the rural poverty in Eritrea. The study focuses on the incidence of poverty, theoretical background of agriculture extension, and some significant factors that could improve the efficiency of agricultural extension. It is evident that most of the poverty alleviation policies in Eritrea are directed towards agriculture in rural areas, as vast human resources in this country are under the plow. To meet the needs of the growing population, this country needs to adopt new techniques/methods for rapid agricultural development. Besides, this study also prescribes some necessary steps to develop agricultural extension in order to increase agricultural production and eventually to minimize the high level of poverty in the country.
