Agricultural extension section
Lab of agricultural management
Agricultural Extension Section takes charge of agricultural management and consultation, farmer education and training, and agricultural information dissemination and communication. The overall objectives are to enhance economic vitality in rural areas and to establish a healthful, excellent, and sustainable agricultural system.
Focusing on regionally important crops, the main tasks of the Lab. of Agricultural Management are to assist the consolidation of farmers, the establishment of farmers’ organizations, and the integration and industrialization of agricultural production-marketing groups, cooperative alliances and farmers associations. Training courses, seminars, and conferences are frequently organized for members of the farmers’ groups to upgrade their production and marketing skills. Evaluations are conducted and the production-marketing groups and farmers with outstanding performances are selected for awards and honors. To strengthen the agricultural economy, we also design and support the “central farm – satellite farms” system. A range of other services are also provided: we assist in establishing domestic fruits and vegetables brands; we hold exhibitions and promotions for agricultural products of good quality; and we offer advices on the operation and management of production-marketing groups.
