  Problem statement: The movement of technology from lab to the field has been a challenge for agricultural extension agents. In this study researchers focused on program development competencies for agricultural extension agents in process of technology transfer and discuss the importance of these competencies by determining the relationship between these competencies and performance of extension agents. Approach: The study employed stratified random sampling technique. The sample consisted of 210 extension agents in four states of Malaysia. The data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis. Results: Extension agents perceived themselves competent in developing program planning, program implementation and program evaluation. The findings supported the positive relationship between competencies and extension agents’ performance. Therefore hypothesis of the study was supported. The results of multiple regressions showed program development competencies explained 0.448 of variance of extension agents’ performance. Conclusion/Recommendations: It can be concluded that performance of extension agents is expected to increase if they have program development competencies. Results supported the importance of these competencies for performance of extension agents in process of technology transfer. Hence to keep extension agents competent and to further improve their performance, these competencies must be considered and upgraded. Continuous assessment of extension agents’ competencies and performance is recommended.

  The aim of this study was to determine the level and relationship between qualities of work life (QWL) with career-related variables. The sample consists of 475 executives from the electrical and electronics industry in the free trade zones in Malaysia for both the multinational corporations (MNCs) and the small-medium industries (SMIs). The selection of respondents using stratified random sampling technique involves a complete list of industrial firms registered with Malaysian Industrial Development Authority (MIDA). Construct validity and discriminant validity were conducted on the instruments. Three exogenous variables were studied. The result indicates that the three exogenous variables are significant: career satisfaction, career achievement and career balance with 63% of the variance in QWL. The respondents appeared to be satisfied in respect to the level of QWL (49.5%), career achievement (70.3%), career satisfaction (63.8%), but less so for career balance (36.6%). These findings contribute to an understanding of ways by top management in attempts to attain a career fit between the needs of the employees and the needs of the organization. The role QWL plays in organizations is an understudied issue. The present study opens an avenue for more studies in this direction.

  Problem statement: The bottom line in agricultural trade is that manufacturers are demanding agricultural products that are produced in a sustainable way and with assurance that they are truly conforming to the standards of Good Agriculture Practice. Towards this objective, attention has been given on sustainable agricultural productions in Malaysia. This study is an attempt to investigate job performance of extension workers in terms of competency in relation to the Good Agricultural Practices. This research investigates the influence of competencies on extension workers’ job performance at the department of agriculture in Malaysia with the emphasis of having both human development competencies and technical competencies in order to perform extension job. Approach: Stratified random sampling technique employed to select 210 extension workers from the Department of Agriculture in four states of Malaysia. A structured research instrument was utilized to survey extension workers’ competency and job performance. To test the extent research data support the MLR model, Enter regression method was used. Results: Results showed that out of the nine competencies included in the regression model only four competencies contributed significantly in explaining the variation of job performance. The R2 value of 0.544 implies that the nine predictors explain about 54.4% of the variance in the extension workers’ job performance. Conclusion/Recommendations: The findings suggest that the data dose not fully support the proposed nine-predictors multiple linear regression model. Finding was contrary to the expectations, since human development areas of competencies did not contribute to the job performance. Hence extension workers are not much involved in human development aspects of their job and they give primary attention to technology transfer rather than human development.

  Quality of Life (QOL) is encompassed in people’s satisfaction with regards to various aspects of their existence. Many QOL studies have been pursued worldwide and some of these are focused upon the rural community. This study aims to investigate the QOL of the riverside community living in Bahau which is an area in Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. This is a quantitative study in which a total of 300 villagers that live near to Muar and serting rivers were chosen as the respondents. The survey method was employed to obtain the data while SPSS was performed to run suitable and relevant analyses. Generally, the analyses confirm that rural communities living near to Muar and Serting rivers in Bahau have a moderate QOL. Specifically, the respondents were found to have a better QOL in terms of their home conditions but not with respect to infrastructure facilities. A number of discussions and recommendations are put forward in this study and it is hoped that these can be used by concerned parties for the development of Bahau.

  This study attempts to examine the rural youth sustainable livelihood phenomena in Malaysia. The results presented in the present study were the preliminary data which gained through the pre-test process. The pre-test was conducted among 30 rural youths in Kuala Besut, Terengganu. Out of 6 capitals studied, 3 of them recorded high levels of mean scores while the other 3 capitals recorded a moderate level of mean scores. The human capital recorded the highest mean score, however yet the strength possessed in human capital cannot assist them to strengthen their financial capital as this capital recorded the lowest mean score. Though results discussed only demonstrate the preliminary findings, however yet the results are expected to portray a possible prediction of what actual data would be.
