Abstract

The Granary Area Programme (GAP) was designed to enhance the productivity of rice farming in areas with high potential for rice cultivation in Sri Lanka. The purpose of this study was to assess the impacts of the programme interventions. The findings of this study suggest that this programme was unable to make a significant contribution to productivity enhancement in the paddy sector and to increase the farmers' adaptability to new agronomic practices. However, the GAP has contributed to the development of the extension system.  

Key words: Extension; Farmer Groups; Granary Area programme; Rice
