Abstract

An understanding of social issues, the social nature of farming, and the social basis of adoption is needed if agricultural extension is to be effective in addressing natural resource management issues, and in promoting sustainability in its triple bottom line conceptualisation. Twenty-seven principles are presented here, with the key principles being: awareness offarming as a social activity; recognition ofthe social diversity offarmers and the social drivers in agriculture; and the socio-cultural basis of adoption.
