dc.description In Tanzania, smallholder the adoption of agricultural and livestock recommended practices and technologies is remains constrained. At the hub of the problems is the limited level of knowledge and skills, which is compounded by lack of money among small holder farmers to buy the improved technologies. This study's findings go further to emphasize that the agricultural inputs should be available when they are need and at prices that small holder farmers can afford. This requires that there are supportive policies towards smallholder farmers, such as the government subsidizing the price of some agricultural inputs. This study stresses that agricultural extension agents should use available conventional extension methods and approaches in order to teach small holders farmers to raise the productivity of the inputs they use, and subsequently increase their income from crop sales.
