Communicating agricultural information via cell phones (World Ag Cell Phone)
World Ag Info Project Design Team
Solution Scenario Concept: Communicate agricultural information via cell phones. Content would be collected from a variety of agricultural information sources and then distributed through local cell phone networks. Some of the possible services that could offer are: soil testing system, market information via SMS, automated agricultural answering system, and agricultural information audio and video downloads.
WorldAgInfo Project Solution Scenario 5: Technologies and Information Exchange Systems : Radios and Cell Phones. Based on the deliberations of participant groups in Workshop 1, the WorldAgInfo Design Team drafted a problems and solutions summary document (available within Section Three of the Final Report). This is one of several potential solution scenarios to emerge through that process. These were in turn used to inform proposed information projects generated by Workshop 2 participants in Livingstone, Zambia (available within Section Two of the Final Report).
