Results showed that cultural competency, Program planning competency, Program evaluation competency, number of crop types in the division and number of farmers in the division, Cultural competency and number of farmers in the division positively influence the extension worker’s job performance while program planning competency, program evaluation competency, number of crop types in the division negatively influence the extension worker’s job performance. The findings suggest that cultural competency highly influences extension workers ҆ job performance, hence the focus should be given to Improve the extension worker’s awareness on local culture.
