Regression analysis was utilized to examine the contribution of the variables to performance of agriculture extension workers. The findings show that three variables were significantly contributed to the level of extension worker performance. The variables are competencies in extension program implementation, extension evaluation and extension program planning. These predictor variables explain 42.2 % of the variance in the job performance of extension workers.
