Agricultural extension and advisory services (EAS) in Mali can be divided into three primary clusters. The first, and by far the most important because of the number of field staff members, extent of geographic coverage and range of technical areas, are the governmental and parastatal extension services. Second are those non-governmental organizations and projects that provide temporary or occasional EAS. The least developed are the private sector entities that provide limited EAS.
