Comparative Analysis of the Training Needs and Job Performance Constraints among Field Extension Agents in Abia and Akwa Ibom States, Nigeria

O. O. EKUMANKAMA; U. S. ANYANWU
Comparative analysis of the training needs and job performance constraints among field extension workers in Abia and Akwa Ibom States was studied. The study utilized both primary and secondary data collected through structured questionnaire and analyzed using both descriptive and inferential statistics. The sample size comprised 112 Extension Agents drawn from Abia and Akwa Ibom States. Data analysis involved descriptive statistics such as frequency counts, percentages, means and z-test. Result of data analysis shows that EAs in Abia and Akwa Ibom States had greatest needs for training in livestock management on construction of pen with mean scores of (X = 3.70) and (X = 3.79); in fishery practices site selection for pond construction (X = 3.88) and (X = 4.02); in extension message delivery, the greatest needs was on SPAT establishment with mean scores of (X = 4.46) and (X = 4.43); in soil science, they had need for training in fertilizer application methods (X = 4.25) and (X = 4.36); in Agroforestry, there was greatest need in establishment of snail farm (X = 3.92) and (X = 3.61) for Abia and Akwa Ibom States. In agronomic practices, there was great need for training in site selection and land preparation (X = 4.46) and (X = 4.46) in Abia and site selection (X = 4.48) for Akwa Ibom State. In Abia State 96.4% of EAs perceived lack of tangible facility for movement on the field as their major problem, followed by 92.9% who perceived irregular supply of OFAR inputs as a major problem. Also, irregular supply of SPAT inputs was seen as a major problem by 91.1% of EAs in Abia State ADP. Whereas in Akwa Ibom State the sampled EAs perceived their major problems to be poor input backup, lack of extension kits, irregular payment of mobility allowance, irregular supply of SPAT inputs with percentages of 98.2, 98.2, 96.4, 96.4 respectively. The implication is that Akwa Ibom EAs perceived more problems than EAs in Abia State as seen in their percentages of responses. The null hypothesis of no significant difference between the training needs of field extension workers in Abia and Akwa Ibom States ADPs was rejected since z-calculated 3.668 for EAs was greater than z-tabulated (1.658). Necessary recommendations were made based on findings
