dc.description.abstractOur title is Knowledge Transfer for a Horticultural Revolution: The Lifelong Learning for Farmers Model. We argue that the current approach to agricultural extension, which is based on the green revolution, is unsuitable for the horticultural revolution that developing countries want to see. We shall suggest criteria for a better approach to horticultural extension and show how COL’s Lifelong Learning for Farmers Model meets these criteria.// Our talk has five parts. First, we recall the origins of extension programmes and argue that they are no longer fit for purpose. Second we explore how the focus on the green revolution in agriculture has by-passed the development of horticulture. Third, we examine emerging thinking about extension. Fourth, we show how COL’s Lifelong Learning for Farmers programme draws on this thinking. Finally, we conclude by recalling the key premises that underpin the Lifelong Learning for Farmersmodel.en_US
