Crop Demonstration Plot is an area selected by the DOA (Dept of Agriculture) within the farmers farm which fall under certain criteria. This plot will be used as a training ground for other farmers to see the relevant technology introduced such as Planting System, New Crop Variety, Fertilizer and method of application, New Chemical and the Usage, IPM, farm management and others. Agriculture Extension officers will supervised the selected farmers to follow Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) procedure so that the plot is presentable to others. The farmers are willing to follow and able to communicate very well with some basic knowledge or experienced in farming activity.

Agriculture Extension Services by Department of Agriculture recognise Farm Demonstration plot as a way to transfer agriculture technology to the clientelle especially in food crop production so that the produce must be best quality and safe to eat. Most popular comodities determined under this concept are Leafy vegetables (Spinach, Brassica, Kailan, Kangkng), Cash Crops (Yam, Tapioca, Maize) , Paddy and selected tropical fruits (papaya, pineapple, avio etc). DOA also provide some assistance to the farmers in the forms of Technical Training, Basic Crops Inputs and advisory services.
