ICT Update is a regular newsletter from CTA that focuses on topical issues in ICT for agriculture. The latest issue focuses on Precision Agriculture for Smallholder Farmers. This issue is hinged on the estimates that it is projected that by 2050 the population growth will have outgrown food production.
The issue centers on this theme through the Market-led, User-owned ICT4Ag Enabled Information Service (MUIIS) a project funded by the Netherlands Space Office and implemented by CTA with partners.
The goals of this project are to increase crop yield, farmers’ income, the use of agri-inputs and water, trade and investment; and decrease the risk of using agri-inputs.
This issue of the ICT update focuses on this project where key people working for several of the partner organizations are interviewed.
