In an objective to assess the impact of extension package program on productivity and efficiency of Ethiopian agriculture, the study used data collected in 2001 by the Ethiopian Development Research Institute (EDRI). The estimated total factor productivity using Tornqvist total factor productivity index shows that the total factor productivity of maize, teff and wheat extension farmers on average exceed that of non-extension while there are no clearly discernable differences in efficiency. Determinants of both total factor productivity and technical efficiency are identified. Most importantly, the role of agro-ecologies in influencing both total factor productivity and efficiency is significant, implying the need for considering agro-ecology differences in introducing extension package technologies
