ICTs/Mobile apps for Access, Distribution and Application of Agricultural Inputs

Organised by: IFDC, IWMI

The goal of this session is to share experiences in the development and use of innovative ICTs/mobile apps for access, distribution and application of agricultural inputs with the conference audience and beyond. The experts will present "discovery tours" of 4 innovative ICTs on agricultural inputs (water, fertilisers, fake inputs, value chain and supply chains) with useful "take aways", and a panel discussion on the user expectations of the ICT services. Participants are expected to understand the features/benefits of some new ICT services for agricultural inputs; appreciate the need to have a portfolio of dedicated apps depending upon the content and targeted audience; and understand the technical, financial and human resources required to develop and deploy the ICT solutions that can improve farm productivity/income and generate revenues for the business. Session participants will learn to avoid re-developing/launching the services, connect with existing credible service providers, and prepare to strive to get things working in the field. NB: Kindly bring your phones/ smart phones and possibly the location coordinates of your farm (latitude, longitude).
