Abstract : In this paper, we wonder whether the implementation of agricultural advisory services (AAS) at grassroots level was influenced by the state, donors, service providers or rather by farmers. We selected three non government organizations, one farmer organisation and one public organisation providing services under different financing arrangements. We found that donors highly influenced the implementation of services. Operational providers had some degree of freedom for adapting services. Consequently, different providers under the same contractual arrangements could use different strategies to meet farmers' needs. Farmers had less influence on the implementation of AAS. Much is still to be done for a real farmer-led AAS. (Résumé d'auteur)
