ICT for agriculture

Since agriculture is a human economic activity, information and communication are essential to it. For example, knowing the price of agricultural products on the markets or receiving agrometeorological information are crucial for farmers. Considering the challenges facing Benin in terms of population growth, declining productivity or climate change, the potential of ICT must be harnessed. This program aims at promoting the use of ICT in agricultural development for increased productivity and incomes of smallholders.
