Inventory of agricultural information systems

The Inventory of Innovative Farmer Advisory Services using ICTs, from the excellent Forum for Agricultural Research in Africa, was published in February 2009, but I have just discovered it. It lists sixty systems dedicated to improving the technical and business information available to small farmers in Africa.

Its foreword provides a progressive view of the new discipline of  “e-Agriculture”:

The e‐Agriculture concept  goes beyond technology, to the integration of
knowledge and culture, aimed at improving communication and learning processes
among relevant actors in agriculture at different levels i.e. locally, regionally and
globally.
