Abstract Advisory service provisioning on sustainability issues such as the environment and food safety is considered suboptimal in privatised pluralistic agricultural extension systems. Hence policy measures have been proposed to stimulate farmer demand for such sustainable farm management advice (pull measures), and to build capacity amongst private advisors (push measures). Awareness building is a prerequisite to create demand for such services and appears more important than economic incentives. However, a lack of awareness may not be the main problem: the broader institutional context may not be conducive to a proactive approach to addressing sustainable farm management if regulatory frameworks are unclear. Keywords: environmental protection, nutrient management, food safety, mastitis, public goods, advisors, sustainable farm management
