Abstract

The enactment of Law 16/2006 on System of Agricultural Extension, Fisheries and Forestry may be marked as the new era in agricultural extension development of Indonesia. It is realized so far, that there has been no significant progress to that issue since the extension service had been administratively shifted from the central government to regional authority. Lack of local authority commitment on funding the extension services has made agricultural extension activities remained undeveloped during the years. With Law 16/2006, extension services gained sufficient legal-basis to be undertaken and thus financed by regional authority. This article is part of study to see sub-systems of extension, i.e. extension policy, agricultural extension, research and inspection, special education/official duty, and training. These sub-systems build up an integrative extension system that determines the success of agricultural extension mission at large. This writing tries to elaborate how better functional interconnection among those sub-systems could help increase the effectiveness of agricultural extension activities in the field.
