Agricultural extension and advisory services (AEAS) are a good technique to inform and teach the farmers on the new technologies. AEAS bring information from a farmer to another. And then, the farmers could have good information on improved agricultural technologies and food security. AEAS are also supposed to make their best to contact separately female farmers and male farmers with specific information, if necessary. Say, AEAS are interesting means to build regularly the capacities of all the farmers, both men and women.
