Concept of subject matter specialist

Concept of subject matter specialist has been taken from the success of lab to land programme, training and visit programme and FLD programmes. SMSs are specialists of particular subject and can conduct scientific evaluation (OFT), demonstration (FLD) and training to extension personals as well as rural youth. They provide direct interaction between farmers and scientist (SMS ownself) for effective technology dissemination and adoption. Besides, it other related works are, expected from them for the benefit of rural farmers.
