The Department of Agriculture Extension (DAE) of the Cambodian Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (MAFF) was established in 1995 to develop a demand-driven, district-implemented, provincially-managed and centrally-overseen extension system appropriate to the needs of Cambodia. DAE aims to improve food security, rural income and agricultural production in Cambodia by improving the quantity and quality of agricultural production in Cambodia. DAE, through its district and community-based extension workers, represents Cambodia’s frontline efforts to sustainably improve agricultural production, provide farmers with access to vital agricultural information and support the development of farmer organizations and agricultural communities.
