Using mobile technology to help farmers make better agricultural decisions

Smallholder farmers are often unable to access information or public advisory services but mobile technology is providing an answer

Abstract

Smallholder farmers are often unable to access information or public advisory services on a regular basis, but mobile technology is providing an answer. With a growing number of the developing world’s population now using mobiles (already up to 40%), CABI is enabling farmers to get timely and targeted agricultural advice. They are bridging the information gap that conventional public extension services cannot span.
