"Dear All, Issues of climate change are no longer seen as issues for scientists only, every farmer is getting concerned and are now part of the people who are seeking for solutions to the problem. How best should we engage them? "

Zambian farmers to use SMsize Internet based platform to improve their productivity.

Despite its potential, the agricultural sector in Zambia has performed below expectations.  One of the factors that have been repeatedly mentioned as responsible for this dismal performance has been weak research-extension-farmer linkages.However, this will be a thing of the past as Zambian farmers will soon start using their…See More

Profile Information

Why are you interested in FrontlineSMS? How did you hear about it? (To help us filter out spammers, we need as MUCH detail as possible, else we may not be able to approve your request. If you'd rather not share this information openly please email info@frontlinesms.com before joining)
I was brought to FrontlineSMS because I would like to find quick solutions for the farming community. I work for the department of National Agricultural Information Services in the Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives. The department disseminates agricultural information to the farming community through Radio, TV and Print. Over the years we have been receiving feedback from farmers through a feedback system which we have put in place. The problem is that it takes too long for the feedback from farmers reach the programme producers at HQ. What we want now is to have a system which can allow farmers send in their questions and be able to get a response within the shortest period of time as posible. I feel FrontlineSMS is the solutions to our problem if farmers have to get the full benefits of our programmes.
Tell us about you. (Please also add an image to your profile)
I am an Agriculture Information Officer in the Department of National Agricultural Information Services. I have worked in the department for 19 years now. I produce Agricultural Radio and TV programmes. I am also a content manager in a small IICD suported project within the department which is looking at how ICTs can help disseminate agricultural information to the farming community and other stakeholders.
