ICTs for sharing agricultural information in India

The National Academy of Agricultural Research Management in India is implementing a project (shockwave/flash file) that explores the future of information and knowledge in agricultural research. Based in one village, the project seeks to assess farmer information needs relevant to internet and build a system using ICTs in agriculture technology dissemination for problem solving; empower farmers and farm women in the use of ICT; and develop policy strategy and benchmarks to use ICTs to improve the quality of life in rural areas across the country.
