Therefore, a qualitative study through interviews, observations and visits carried out to investigate: (i) definitions, concepts, philosophy and structure of Agriculture Extension Service in Malaysia; (ii) to what extent the Restoration Project and Planting Pomelo at Kubang Pasu in raising contributions for National food availability; (iii) to what extent of implementation of the planning, monitoring and methods in Agriculture Extension Program in Malaysia; and (iv) the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats in the Restoration and Planting Project in Kubang Pasu.
