This paper addresses the identification of the rote of field knowledge broker in ICT based knowledge transfer practice in the perspective of knowledge transfer study. A case study is undertaken based on a Chinese agricultural extension project for the expert system applications implemented nationally in various agricultural production fields. This paper reveals that the field knowledge broker can have five roles for a successful implementation of knowledge transfer in the agriculture sector. The roles include: an infrastructure provider for local availability of expert system; a tailored expert system developer for usability of the expert system; a knowledge transfer conduit for transferring non-codified knowledge; a knowledge sharing organizer for facilitating local farmer's knowledge exchange; and a new knowledge creator for innovating new knowledge package in responding the local conditions.
