This study was done with the objective of contributing to the policy debate on the changing landscape of agricultural rural services in Uganda. The study examines the perception of Agricultural Extension providers on the new changes in provision of agricultural extension services. Data was collected from twenty two key informants. Result show that political interference is negatively affecting the image of the National Agricultural Advisory Services (NAADS) and undoing some of its achievements. This suggests the need to re-evaluate the current political support given to agriculture to ensure that it builds on past achievement of NAADS and addresses its weaknesses.
