Hello, developing an educational drama film around agriculture for Malawi 2012. Sounds mad? Our last HIV drama  Mawa Langa is proving really successful in getting information out and helping raise important issues. We want to do the same for agriculture/conservation. Interested in stories about farmers using SMS etc. Thanks.

We have done some thorough work on information needs in rural India. Surveying different groups of users (grouped according to major livelihood - rain fed farming, wage labor, irrigated farms, livestock) that all had some relation to farming. You might be interested in the results.

Thank you Knoche,

My Research study has three phases; Survey of farmers  information needs during the production cycle, setting up the phone based information system and Evaluating the efficacy of the information based system.


I am currently working on phase 1, surveying the farmers information needs to be able to create an automatic SMS system that can give feedback automatically and at the same time collect the type of questions to expect from farmers at different stages during the production cycle.


Thank you.

Hello all,

I'm working from Switzerland on an ICT4D project focusing on improving the livelihoods of small and marginal farmers in India.

We're planning to use frontline SMSs as the backend for a mobile phone based interactive information system. You can find more about our project here:

I'd be interested in knowing more about Isaac's and Erica's projects and plans.

Hi all, I'd love to use Frontline SMS with a group of small-scale farmers I am working with in Paraguay to help them aggregate their produce through text messages and an aggregator tool. Let me know who I can talk to at Frontline to develop a prototype.

I successfully defended my oral proposal for a Ph.d. programme at the University of Nairobi. My study will be on ICT mediated agricultural extension service in Africa: A study of Irish potatoes farming in Kenya.

Basically the study will focus on how mobile phone and internet based information platform can be used to improve the agricultural extension services. I am requesting for case studies and testimonies of the group members who have carried or are carrying a similar study to give their insights.

Just to tell you that I updated a comprehensive article that I wrote in Spanish which talks about mobile telephony, the global food crisis, what makes mobile phone technology so special, experiences in Africa, Asia and America, and finally my proposal in more detail. Please check it out. Comments and suggestions are welcome.

Thank you

I am working on my Ph.D proposal on Efficacy of internet-mobile phone mediated agricultural extension service. The study will seek to know the condition under which internet-mobile phone mediated agricultural service can be applied and how best this technology can be used more effective in agricultural extension. I need some information on the implementation of this research.
