Different approaches with regard to environmental protection and mitigation of negative impacts of development plans have been proposed during past decades. Organic agriculture as a production system is one of these. It applies minimum amount of artificial fertilizer, pesticides and additive hormones input. Taking into consideration Iran’s specific geographic, economic and social conditions, this option might be an appropriate one. This study aims to evaluate the attitude of agricultural information system toward practice of organic agriculture in center part of Boyer Ahmad County. Statistical society is composed of the researchers, agricultural extension agents and farmers out of which ٧٧, ٦٨ and ٧٢ were selected respectively. Referring to Krjisy and Morgan sampling tables and random stratified sampling technique, the size of sample happened to be ٦٤, ٥٥ and ٦٠. Data gathering is predominately based on questionnaire in which its credibility was confirmed by rural developer experts. Its viability using Cronbach were determined to be ٠.٩٤ – ٠.٧٦. This study suggests that researchers and agricultural extension agents possess moderate – positive attitude toward organic agriculture. However, farmers’ attitudes tend to be relatively poor. This could be explained by this fact that researchers and extension agents familiarity with respect to organic agriculture is higher comparing with farmers’ familiarity.
