Abstract
This paper presents the results of the project which aim at building a radio based impact driven small farner extension service system. Early studies show that without fully farmers participation from the initial stage of developing the radio programs up to the final stage of radio programs presentation - they tend to shy away from adopting the good innovations, practices and initiatives (Banjade, 2006).Thus, the research methodology adopted for this research was participatory action research with a triangulation approach. The results shows that small farmers have started playing an effective role in content packaging and presenting in some community radios. This brings a new finding how indigenous knowledge and the knowledge from researchers can be mixed in a harmonously way to improve the livehood of the radio farmers.
