DIGITAL EXTENSION SERVICES BLOG COMPETITION WINNERS
Announcing the winners of the blog competition on digital extension services.
These services are now showing impact at regional scales, but how can we speed this process up so we can enable farmers worldwide to have access to great decision-making tools? Can an out-of-the-box business model that works well in the Andes areas in Ecuador work for a start-up in Ethiopia as well?
Can the lessons learned on what works and what doesn’t for a company piloting a tool for farmers in Ghana benefit a company in Indonesia?
Entries & Judging
Seeking answers to these questions, the Community of Practice on Data-Driven Agronomy launched a blog competition on digital extension services in September 2019.
The competition served as an opportunity for those working in the digital extension in agriculture field to share their experiences with their technologies, business models, key challenges, and major bottlenecks, as well as how they solved such challenges, when creating and implementing innovative solutions.
The Community received more than 20 entries from across the world. Thank you to all who participated!
The judging panel evaluated the top blogs on their knowledge sharing, relevance, originality, writing level, and social media engagement. Three winners were selected and will be awarded 200 USD each.
