Helping agriculture and rural communities thrive
through awareness raising and smart agriculture
Making rural communities more attractive and leading the future of agriculture
Lee Jong-soon, EPIS President
Welcome to the website of the Korea Agency of Education, Promotion and Information Service in Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (EPIS).
Agriculture and rural communities play a vital role in many areas.
Aside from the primary function of producing farm products, they serve public interests by ensuring food security, promoting landscape and environmental conservation, maintaining communities and safeguarding traditions. Other services for the common good include ensuring water provision and flood risk reduction and offering places to relax and unwind in nature.
In an effort to shed light on these contributions, we at EPIS will continue to explore innovative practices in the agri-food industry, with a vision to become a specialized agency committed to making rural communities more attractive and leading the future of agriculture.
Our streamlined agricultural training programs will facilitate the efficient and quick transfer of expertise and knowledge from experienced farmers to young and successor farmers.
The wider use of big data analytics and smart farming techniques will help lay the groundwork for digital agriculture, contributing to the growth of agriculture and rural communities as well as increased farm income.
We will also step up our efforts to raise awareness of the importance of agriculture and rural communities by highlighting how they promote public interests.
As we strive to be the pillar of support for agriculture and rural communities, we look forward to your continued support in the years ahead.
