A visit was made to India from 21st to 26th July 2008, to conduct a spot survey of the mango value chain. The main survey area was Lucknow and New Delhi. The purpose of the survey was to study the current situation of the Mango value chain and role of information and communication technology in the Agriculture sector in India. The current situation needs to be addressed through social mobilization and innovative knowledge dissemination approaches. As the ICTs related infrastructure is in place, these should be used to both gather and disseminate information. These efforts should take advantage of existing resources to enhance quality from farm to market and capacity building of chain actors.
