Advisory service

The Agricultural and Rural Economy Advisory Service brings together advisers who consult with farmers and rural entrepreneurs. The advisory service operates on the basis of the advisory system with a nationwide structure, whose main goal is to provide advice, continuing education and information dissemination in the areas of agriculture and rural life.

The advisory system is formed of:
• the advisory service giving advice (consisting of recognized advisory centers, advisers and a coordinating center);
• institutions involved in creation of information (research institutes, national surveillance authorities with information on requirements and support, etc);
• The Ministry of Agriculture (as a body organizing the national organization and providing financing).

The Estonian agricultural and rural advisory service mission is through advice to develop a sustainable agricultural and rural economy in Estonia.

The vision is to become a reliable partner for an undertaking in the agricultural and rural economy.

Since the beginning of the year 2010 the advisory service, targeted for farmers and rural entrepreneurs, has been coordinated by the Rural Development Foundation.
