Demonstration plots are one of the best methods to educate communities to improve yield. Showing farmers how their fields should be designed is one of the methods used as tools by the extension worker to effect desirable changes in the behavior of rural masses, arrange the best learning situations, and provide opportunities in which useful communication and interaction take place between extension workers and farmers.

The following guidelines have been developed by the Agricultural Productivity and Nutrition Component of the LFSP to assist extension staff and farmers to better plan, design and manage crop demonstrations that respond to farmers’ extension gaps.
