Other AbstractThis study analyzed information gathered from 200 date palm households in the mountainous Panjgur District of Balochistan in Pakistan with the aim of determining date farmers’ access to and satisfaction with agricultural extension services. Information was collected through a structured questionnaire survey; group discussions and semi-structured personal interviews. The findings of the analysis revealed very poor access to extension services. The results of logistic regression analysis identified five variables out of six which significantly influence date farmers’ access to extension services: household head’s age; household head’s literacy; number of date palm trees owned; mostly inherited date palm trees; and percentage of dead date palm trees. The overwhelming majority of farmers were dissatisfied with all three main types of extension services being provided by public extension officials. Explanations for this as well as for associations between access to extension services and the six independent variables are provided. Important policy conclusions are drawn based on the findings.
