Extension for the rice industry is at a crossroads, with intersecting forces of a period of reduced expenditure on research and extension at the end of a long period of drought, continuing uncertainty about the supply of irrigation water, and the desire of governments to re-examine extension responsibilities and arrangements.  
This report examines current extension arrangements and points towards future possibilities against a background of extension theory and comparisons with other industries and situations.
