Smartphones Could Help Small-Scale Farmers

Small-scale farmers could save more money by using smartphones for banking, accessing agriculture-related information and also for accessing the market

A new study commissioned by Vodafone has found that small-scale farmers in emerging economies could save billions by using smartphones for banking, to get vital farm-related information and to gain market access.

The survey, run in conjunction with Accenture and Oxfam, found that farmers could access information such as weather warnings, commodity prices and planting tips.

Accenture strategy director, Grant Hatch, emphasises that upping production by small-scale farmers in Africa, South America and Asia is essential to secure the world's future food supply.
