Satellites to help China's farmers

Under current plans, 95 percent of Chinese villages will soon have Internet access. In western China's Gansu province, primary school students download and print agricultural information from the Jinta county government's web site for their parents and neighbours.

A news feature in Techworld.com outlines some further ideas by which the benefits of IT can be brought to rural China. Li Youping, an academician at the Chinese Academy of Engineering, suggests using satellite technology to put Web pages within the reach of Chinese farmers.
