The marginalization of extension institution in line with the publication of Laws no. 23/2014 concerning the local government has the potential to decrease the performance of extension workers and their capacity. Extension worker reliability is closely related to the capacity level. Problems in the field are the decrease of farmers’ satisfaction with agricultural extension activities. Lampung Province is in the era of the institutional extension dissolution at the district and provincial levels, which leads to a decreasing number of extension workers and a decrease in the commitment to financing extension. The purpose of this study was to analyze the relationship between the extension capacity of farmers and farmers’ satisfaction. This research is an explanatory research using quantitative approach and supported by qualitative information. The research was conducted in Lampung Province with 355 counselors and 355 farmers. The scoring method is used to measure the extension capacity level with indicators based on the extension function in Laws no. 16/ 2006. There is a significant difference between the government extension workers and contract employee workers. The level of agricultural extension capacity in Lampung Province is from the medium to the low category, and the farmers’ satisfaction of extension activities is still low. Extension level of extension capacity is very evident from the farmers’ satisfaction with extension activities. The loss of institutional counseling at the district and provincial levels means the weakening of extension capacity, which has a significant impact on the weakening of farmers’ satisfaction.
