The electronic delivery of extension service is undertaken through a network of institutions that provide a more efficient alternative to a traditional extension system for agriculture, fisheries, and natural resources sectors. It maximizes the use of information and communication technology (ICT) to attain a modernized agriculture and fisheries sector. It focuses on creating an electronic and interactive bridge where farmers, fishers, and other stakeholders meet and transact to enhance productivity, profitability, and global competitiveness.

The electronic Extension (e-Extension) Program for Agriculture and Fisheries started in the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) by virtue of Department Order No. 3, series of 2007. The ATI was designated to lead in the provision of e-Extension services in collaboration with the various agencies, bureaus, and organization units of the Department of Agriculture (DA). This is to integrate and harmonize ICT-based extension delivery system for agriculture and fisheries.
