Agricultural transformation is a priority for Africa. Across the continent, the significant information needs of farmers – accurate local weather forecasts, relevant advice on agricultural practices and input use, real time price information and market logistics – remain largely unmet. To the extent that rural regions are typically sparsely populated with limited infrastructure and dispersed markets, the use of innovative information and communication technologies (ICTs) overcome some of these information asymmetries and connect farmers to opportunities that weren’t necessarily available to them earlier. Harnessing the rapid growth of digital technologies holds hope for transformative agricultural development.
