M-agriculture and their role

M-agriculture refers to agricultural services, technology dissemination, and communication using mobile devices such as mobile phones, laptops, netbooks, PDAs and other wireless enabled devices. There are so many possible applications of m-agriculture:

  • Delivers on time information that helps understand and analyse market prices, facilitating trade and informed business decisions.
  • Reduces transaction time, travels, and costs by shortening distances, which allows for a more effective use of time.
  • Strengthens communications which promote social networks and communities' progress in health, safety, employment, recreation, and other areas.
  • Increases levels of community participation, facilitating an informed decision making process, particularly, greater contribution from rural women.
