Abstract: Good agricultural practices (CGAPs) respond mainly to the need of protecting biodiversity, genetic resources and landscape, soil and water resources, as well as the provision of public goods by farmers. Biodiversity conservation is inextricably linked to agricultural activity. Cyprus, due to the variety of landscapes with special microclimatic and topographic characteristics, the variety of soil and geological substrates and the diversity of vegetation, forest and agriculture, contributes to the creation of a wonderful variety of habitats that meet the requirements of numerous species of wildlife. In this highly competitive environment, agricultural consultants can and do play an important role in disseminating knowledge regarding the adoption of information and communication technologies as well as precision agriculture. Those technologies apply to any type of agricultural holding and can be an integral part regarding the wider application of good agricultural practices by the farmers.
