Chapter 5. Opinions of the agricultural extension agents
In addition to the household survey, we also collected the opinions of 57 agricultural extension agents. The age and experience of the sampled agricultural extension agents are presented in Table 20. On average, an extension agent was nearly 34 years old with 10 years of experience (Table 20). Our survey revealed that in the Oromia region, wheat was an important crop in both meher and belg seasons, but in the Amhara region, wheat was mainly cultivated in the meher season.
