This paper investigated the extent of use of performance indicators for appraisal of field officers in Enugu State Agricultural Development Programme (ENADEP).Two structured questionnaire were used to collect data from a randomly selected sample of 51 senior staff of the establishment. Data were analyzed by use of descriptive statistics. The results showed that establishment of small plot Adoption Techniques (SPATs) and assessment in the Annual Performance Evaluation Report (APER) form, were the major indicators used to appraise the field officers, but the only one used during promotion is APER form. These findings suggest that the continual use public service APER form alone in the promotion of technical staff like the field officers or Extension Agents(EAs) in ENADEP is subjective since critical success factors in the job description for these field officers are not embodied in that APER form.

Keywords: Performance indicators, Agricultural Development Programme, Field officers, Enugu.
