Description
Discusses how farmers and governments use information and communication technology (ICT) to increase agricultural productivity. Farmers can use ICT to match cropping practices to climatic trends, use inputs and resources environmentally and sustainably, and cope with productivity threats. Public officials can adjust policies to reflect the data collected with ICT, predict food supplies, and target social programs or promote yield technologies. Integrating ICT into national programs, creating a policy environment conducive for ICT investment, and designing compatible and common digital systems can help improve access for users, but social and financial challenges remain. Powerful yet inexpensive tools (and the financial support and training to use them) can sometimes prove unavailable for small-scale producers in developing countries, but conducting impact studies and sharing pilot project information can focus and speed the development of such ICT types. The productivity goals and technologies used to meet them must match the ICT capacity in the focus location
