Welcome to FFTC
Over the past 40 years, FFTC as a regional information center in the Asian and Pacific (ASPAC) region has played an immensely important role in collecting, exchanging, and disseminating information on a wide range of modern and practical technologies, covering the full spectrum of small farm needs and activities relevant to the region. Through its various activities like seminars and workshops, training courses, and regional surveys, we have accumulated a huge body of knowledge and information on agriculture made possible through the works of hundreds of people from member countries and partner institutions. Disseminated through publications, training courses and demonstration projects, these knowledge and information have given countless resource-poor farmers and extension specialists in the region new opportunities and new solutions to their problems.

Five years ago, the Center made available free-of-charge on its website the full text of its publications for the last 15 years. Since then, theFFTC website and database has become an important information resource on Asian agriculture, particularly by the national extension systems of the region. The growing use of the FFTC website/publication database gave a larger number of people access to the Center’s technical and practical information on sustainable agriculture.

We welcome you to this much improved, more user-friendly FFTC website, re-designed and renovated to enhance the Center’s technology transfer mission, facilitate interaction and networking among partner institutions within the region, and make possible a more cost-effective way of disseminating practical information to our users, particularly the small-scale farmers.
