Webinar – Digital tools for farmers advisory and climate action
Webinar organized by the Data-Driven Agronomy Community of Practice of the CGIAR Platform for Big Data in Agriculture.
The rise of digital agriculture could be the most transformative and disruptive change for smallholder farmers since the Green Revolution six decades ago. This is becoming even more relevant due to the current COVID-19 Crisis, where researchers and advisory officers realize the need for digital tools when field access and travels are restricted.
In this webinar, we presents two tools that have been developed within research projects to support the implementation of climate-smart agricultural practices around the world. The first two speakers introduce the Stepwise app that helps coffee and cocoa farmers to adopt climate-smart agricultural practices step-by-step, and the GeoFarmer app for agricultural development projects that facilitate knowledge-sharing processes and data collection. The final speaker presents lessons learned from a user interface design testing with farmers in Uganda.
