Abstract

This study examines the performance of Agricultural Extension Officers in empowering porang farmers in Rejosari Village, Bantur District, Malang Regency. The research involved 50 farmers and used a saturated sampling method. The data was analyzed using descriptive qualitative analysis and the Likert's Summated Rating Scale measurement. The results showed high performance in facilitating, motivating, mediating, innovating, and organizing. The closeness of the relationship between performance variables and farmer empowerment was very high. Suggestions for extension agents include regular training activities and creating a guidebook for farmers to expedite extension activities. The study also suggests that farmers should create their own guidebook for extension activities to support the performance of extension workers and empower farmers.
