Traditional transfer of knowledge (TOT) model involves a vertical one-way communication model featuring research, extension, and the farmer. This model is biased toward the technology rather than towards the farmer. Thus, the research service commonly deals with those problems that it considered relevant to its own interest and not to those of the farmers. Often the results are not delivered efficiently to the extension agents who did not have either adequate information or resources necessary to carry out their work. In the TOT model, researchers, extensionists and farmers are viewed as three separate strata and links between them were weak and nonexistent.
