Things You'll Need
Write the Introduction. When you write an essay, it is important to open the paper with a carefully crafted overview of the paper, known as the introduction. The introduction should introduce the reader to the concept of agricultural rural extension development. Define the concept for the reader and capture the reader's interest by relating why it is important to the reader. The introduction should be clearly written and clearly state the thesis of your essay.
Research and summarize the history of agricultural rural extension development. The second paragraph should provide the reader with a historical background of the extension service. The United States Department of Agriculture's website has information about the key legislation that started the land grant institutions and extension service. Provide examples of how extension research has greatly increased farm productivity.
Write two to three additional paragraphs about Extension's current purpose. Since its beginnings in 1862, agricultural research has grown to serve more than just farmers. Extension now works in youth development, agricultural research, leadership development, natural resources, family and consumer sciences and community and economic development. Provide additional information about each of these fields.
Write a conclusion. Summarize the essay and leave your reader with the most valuable piece of information from the essay. What is the most important thing you would like your reader to know? Does the information call for the reader to act? Be sure to answer these question clearly in the conclusion. Be sure your reader understands the importance of agricultural and rural development and how that affects major metropolitan areas and plays a large role in the economy.
