The research work sought to describe the effectiveness of the sources of information used by agricultural extension in dissemination of recommended practices for cotton crop. 220 farmers were randomly drawn to asses the impact of the selected sources such as radio, TV, printed matter, on farmers decision regarding technology adoption. It was found that Radio, extension worker and contact farmers were very effective in diffusing recommended practices to the farmers. Extension agents perceived lack of proper funding and timely visits of their senior staff members as major constraints in dissemination of information of recommended practices.
