Realising the growing importance of information in agricultural development, the Agriculture Information Section (AIS) became operational in 1965 as a separate unit in the Department of Agriculture. This section was renamed as Agriculture Communication Division (ACD) in 1990. In course of restructuring of the Ministry of Agriculture Development in 2000, it was given its current name of Agricultural Information and Communication Center (AICC) and was attached to the Ministry as one of its central wings with greater role and responsibility.
AICC is a professional wing of the Ministry of Agriculture Development entrusted to produce agricultural information relevant to farmers, traders, entrepreneurs and professionals and to communicate the information through Radio, Television and Print media. The Center also bears the additional responsibility and challenge of managing and using digital information generated recently by the growing application of personal computer, internet and mobile telephone in modernizing agricultural development in the country.
