M-Farmer Initiative


The M-farmer initiative was launched in 2011, with funding from USAID and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, to support mobile service providers, in partnership with public and private sector agriculture organizations, to utilize the mobile channel to extend the reach and improve the quality of information and advisory services for smallholder farmers in emerging markets.  Anyone interested in the implementation and use of mobile technologies for farmers should visit this site.  There are many studies available free of charge in the resources section and personal stories in the “life stories” page.  There is also a section for women, called m-women.
