Future agricultural quality is the result of efforts made by agricultural observers at the present time. An expectation of optimal future agricultural quality is a challenge for observers of agriculture in Saudi Arabia, specifically as a material for thought for agricultural extension workers. The role of agricultural extension agents is the spearhead sharpening the achievement of future agricultural goals. Therefore, the quality of agricultural extension agents becomes the starting point for achieving these objectives. Some of the competencies that must be possessed by agricultural extension workers so that they are worthy of being declared as ideal counselors who are able to view the future as a benchmark for developing agricultural concepts at this time, namely motive, innate competency, self-concept, knowledge and skills. Through the mastery of all these competencies, the agricultural instructor deserves to be declared as the ideal agricultural extension agent as a solution and investment in the future in a logical manner.
