Asian Network for Sustainable Organic Farming Technology (ANSOFT) was established as one of AFACI projects in 2009. A joint work program among 11 AFACI member-countries, the ANSOFT aims to contribute to the sharing and transfer of knowledge and the development of new organic technologies among people who are interested in organic agriculture. This network also promotes Asian organic farming system and contributes to the development of organic agriculture, nationally and internationally.
Agricultural Technology Information Network in Asia (ATIN) aims to establish a standardized network and/or web-based information database system for agricultural knowledge and information sharing among the member countries.
Cassava project aims to improve cassava production by mechanization, reduction of postharvest losses and development of postharvest processing technologies, and by establishing a network among Asian countries.
The project identifies areas for mechanization and develops suitable machines for production and postharvest processing and value adding.

Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) project aims to improve the quality and safety of agricultural produce in Asian countries through the establishment of locally appropriate GAP systems and agri-produce safety information network among member countries.
Integrated Management System of Plant Genetic Resources (IMPGR) is designed to strengthen the capacity of the member countries on effective management of plant genetic resources for sustainable use through collection, regeneration, characterization, and conservation.
Integrated Pest Management (IPM) project leads to the establishment of a collaboration network among Asian countries for efficient management of pests and diseases of horticultural crops, particularly on migrating RPH and associated rice viruses.
The Postharvest project is geared towards reducing the postharvest losses and improving the quality of horticultural crops among member countries through the establishment of a network and model manual on postharvest technology.
Rice, the staple food of the majority of Asian countries, plays a crucial role in achieving food sufficiency. This project intends to develop technologies to improve rice production among member countries. Research initiatives are geared to develop varieties that are resistant to pest and diseases, and tolerant to unfavorable environmental conditions in Asia. It also promotes the advancement of rice mechanization and post harvest technologies that are suitable to the respective member countries’ condition.

Seed-Potato is endeavored to stabilize the potato industry among the member countries by providing technologies in the production of quality virus-free potato seeds. This project particularly looks into new systems of cultivation conditions for each country's potato variety.
This project aims to establish a cooperation system of sericulture technology in Asia. Specifically, this aims to develop high yielding and pest resistant mulberry varieties adaptable to local climatic condition of member countries. The project also establishes a silkworm egg production system under various climatic conditions in the respective member-countries.
Cambodia, Lao PDR, Nepal, Thailand, Vietnam and Korea
Soil Fertility project is implemented with the goal of evaluating soil fertility indicators toward improving its productivity. The project contributes to the enhancement of agricultural productivity through application and sharing of technologies that promote sustainable soil and water resources management.
APPT is geared towards developing processing technology of target agricultural product which has lots of production and is easily processible by small-scale food producer
Salt-tolerant rice project is in line with the AFACI member countries’ need for superior salt-tolerant rice genotypes suitable to their coastal saline soils to minimize the salt damage. Project also targets to develop the cultivation manual.
Bangladesh, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Philippines, Sri Lanka, Thailand, Vietnam and Korea
The Atlas aims to (1) raise awareness amongst the general public, land managers/owners, policy makers, politicians, NGOs and other scientific communities on the importance of soil in Asia; (2) support policies and instruments for investment, agriculture, environmental issues, climate change, development and aid assistance, urban planning, and others; (3) provide educational material to schools and universities to support learning; and (4) provide a baseline for further soil assessments in the region.
