Data were collected from 100 block supervisors randomly selected from four thana (Madaripur Sadar, Razoir, Shibchar and Kalkini) of Madaripur district. Superior office, farm literature and radio were placed first, second and third rank respectively for the extent of use of information sources.

The 11 individual characteristics of the BSs explained 20.44 per cent of variation of credibility of information sources.
