The aim of this research is to explore the characteristics of agricultural extension officers in Gorontalo regency, factors related to the shallot farmer’s skills, and the correlation between the competence of the agricultural extension officer and shallot farmer’s skills. This research employed an ex-post facto method where the data were examined by using Rank Spearman Correlation test. It is revealed that competence of the extension officers is determined by several factors, e.g., age, years of service, number of assisted farmers, educational level, and number of workshops. The competence of the extension officer is central to the shallot cultivation; this is based on the overall survey result indicating that the better the competence of the officers, the more improved the farmer’s skills. The officer’s competence significantly contributes to the shallot farmer’s skills, i.e., personality, andragogy, professionalism, social and technical. However, this does not apply to the innovative communication competence. The aforementioned correlation is also symbolized by the average correlation value of 0.786 or 78.6%.
