This paper aims to evaluate the impact of accessing agricultural extension on householdsâ€™ agricultural profit. Results from pooled cross-sectional data show that each additional time of access is associated with a 15.5 per cent increase in agricultural profit.However, this relation is not linear and if it exceeds 6 times, it will eventually cause more harm than good. We also construct a household and time-fixed effect model to eliminate the effect of unobserved factors.The local extension service impact on agricultural profit is 15.2 per cent for 2010â€“12; 19.8 per cent for 2012â€“14 and 25.5 per cent for 2014â€“16.
