Summary

 

ICT For Agriculture (IFA) is a mobile and web platform capable of providing localized core content, specifically, market prices of farm produce, crop advisories, three-day weather forecasts, input supply, and on demand enquiries, etc. in Android and SMS. The platform connects information producers like agro-vets, government/non-government extension agencies, agriculture experts, and market traders who create unit value for the farmers, and allows two-way interactions. The market intelligence and impact metrics in the application are shared with other relevant stakeholders, such as agribusiness companies, who feature their products through the platform.
