Introduction

Agriculture which is the main stay in the Tanzania economy, contributes about 50% of the country's gross domestic product (GDP) and about 75% of foreign earning. It constitutes more than 80% of rural employment where about 70% of the population live. Agriculture plays major role as the source of food to the national community.

Realizing the role of Agriculture in the country's economy, the government found it of paramount importance to have its own Agricultural Training Institutes which could produce middle cadre technical experts who could later work with the farmers in the rural areas in both private and public farms as change agents of new technological innovations

To date, there are nine (9) Ministry of Agriculture Training Institutes (MATIs) which are on full operational, offering long courses with the aim of preparing graduands for self employment, and tailor made programmes for farmers so as to improve their knowledge and receptivity to new technology and thus enabling them to take agriculture as business.
