Formatted abstract
The Indonesian government is applying the Package Programme approach in the poultry industry. The programme started in 1972. It is known as "Bimas Ayam" programme. Its objectives covered in this study are: increase egg production and farmer's income, and induce the adoption and diffusion of improved practices in poultry farming. 

The study will evaluate the extent to which these objectives have been achieved. A questionnaire has been constructed necessary for doing a field survey in which the personal interview method will be applied. 

Forty seven sub-sets of questions have been phrased. These questions refer to theoretical concepts that impart (i) the objectives of the Bimas Ayam programme, (ii) the programme's successes, and (iii) factors associated with the innovative behaviour of the poultry farmer. 

Also empirical measures of these variables are developed. Their relationships have been specified. The programme's success is used as the dependent variable, which is associated with many personal, social, and economic factors as the independent variables on the part of the farmer. Success is defined as the extent to which the poultry farmers participating in the Bimas Ayam programme have achieved the feeling of self-reliance and self-renewing in developing his poultry farm. 

Implicit in this investigation is a critical evaluation of the package approach as an extension education strategy by taking non-participants as a control group. Members of this group decide to accept only those practices seen relevant by them to the particular conditions of their farms (per definition). Conversely, Bimas Ayam participants have to accept the whole package concurrently which is composed by the agricultural personnel.
