About Center





Agriculture Extension Services are the main source of farmers advisory services in Sindh Province. These are mostly provided through face-to-face methods however the ratio of extension agents to farmers is poor (1: 6,881). In the prevailing conditions of low proportion of Agriculture Extension agents to farmers and high use of mobiles by farming communities, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can play significant role to fill the gap and provide Agriculture Extension Services to the farming community in efficient way. In this regard Directorate General Agriculture Extension Sindh has established ICT Agricultural Extension Services Centre under Sindh Agricultural Growth Project (SAGP) to provide ICT Agricultural Extension Services to the farming community and strengthen the existing Extension Services system by equipping field staff with ICTs tools and approaches to enhance their capacity. Key activities of the center are; Farmer Helpline, Text and voice sms, facebook live program, android applications, YouTube channel, Mobile Cinema Shows, youth Agriculture & IT Hybridization internship etc
