dc.description.abstract Agricultural extension is a specialized system of extension education relating to farmers. We have to effectively handle the information so as to attain our goal of achieving 3 Ps i.e., productivity, profitability and prosperity. In developing countries, it is not the lack of technologies which is a major setback, but the rate of transfer of technologies from the point of generation to the actual users. Thus, there is a vast gap between the knowledge generated and knowledge utilized. Further, it is not only the transfer of technology that alone modernized agriculture, but the adoption of technology and innovation which is equally important. As the result of knowledge gap and adoption gap, there exists considerable amount of yield gap. Many farmers are not able to realize the full potential. To obviate this, the farmers should be educated and technology should be taught to them. At present tea smallholders sector is the main producer of tea in Sri Lanka. It produces approximately 74 per cent of the total tea (TSHDA, 2007). Many extension programs were implemented at different periods by Tea Small Holders Development Authority (TSHDA) but certain limitations still exist in the tea small holding sector. The existing advisory services and extension services among small holders are inadequate. There is no opportunity to express any of their problems and to obtain advice or discuss with a responsible person. Through extension services they are providing knowledge, technology as well as some other facilities. Although they are providing those things they do not know in which extent farmers satisfied with their services. The effectiveness as well the farmers adoptions mainly depend on their overall satisfaction with the extension services. Therefore, identification of factors affecting for farmers' satisfaction with extension service is important to increase the effectiveness of the extension services. en_US
