Association of Agricultural Officers Kerala (AOAOK) is the single largest non-political organization of Graduate Agriculture Professionals working in the Department of Agriculture Development & Farmers Welfare . The Association was registered as per G.O. (MS) 168/PD dt. 19/02/58.”Envisioning an Evergreen Revolution” is the guiding spirit of our organisation . AOAOK is the hope and lifeline of it’s fraternity eversince it’s formation in 1958.It had blazed a new trail in the history of employee organization with it’s motto of ‘ Farmer First ‘ but the employees never felt left .Over the course of it’s long journey it had helped the Graduate Agricultural Officers to have its own identity & existence .In 1971 it succeeded in delinking the Department from Community Development Blocks and persuaded the Government to accept the Department of Agriculture as the nodal agency of Agri Extension Services in the State .It catalysed the transformation of the famed ‘ Training & Visit System ‘ to a sustainable institutional mechanism of Krishibhavans in all Panchayats from September 1987.It fought well to earn the status of Gazetted Officer to all the entry level Agricultural Officers .Over the years it had transformed to a beacon organization who not only think about the welfare of it’s rank and file ,but of the farmers at large who toil for the food security of the State .The Department had now rechristened as the Department of Agriculture Development and Farmers Welfare with many offshoots like ATMA,SHM,LEADS etc the challenges had mounted manifold like the scarcity of human resources for taking up the additional job responsibilities .The members are looking upon the organization as the one capable of achieving the unachieved long pending goals set by it’s predessors with regard to Professional parity and optimal career advancement .Though there are a few organization operating in the State for Gazetted Officers ,AOAOK stands out as the special one by virtue of it’s apolitical stand , passion for professional excellence and social commitment.
