The last batch of FITS (Farmers Information and Technology Services) Centers in Iloilo, Capiz, Antique, Guimaras and Negros Occidental are now online thanks to the provision of PCAARRD funded mobile internet connectivity kits. Powered by PLDT WeROAM mobile internet technology, the FITS centers can now enjoy high-speed internet connectivity that will facilitate faster access to information to fast track the delivery of services to clients in agriculture, aquaculture, forestry and natural resources. 

During the interconnectivity orientation held at the WVSU Institute of  Information and Communication Technology last December 7, 2012, FITS- Information System FITS-participants were briefed on how to set-up the internet connection in their respective FITS centers. They were likewise oriented on how to use and maintain their FITS Information System (FITS-IS) account.  

The FITS-IS system as an ICT tool in R&D seeks to organize data available on technologies whether from local, regional and other sources. It also seeks to provide an up-to-date inventory of agriculture-related publications and video materials that are available to FITS clients.  The system is composed of six major databases namely: (1) technology, (2) experts profile, (3) farmers profile, (4) contact firms, (5) publication, (6) technology video materials.
