Introduction Agriculture is the most important provider of food and plays an essential role in economic growth. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) states that global demand for food must grow to 70% by 2050 to meet demand. While current production suffices to feed the entire world population, 500 million people still suffer from malnutrition, and over 821 million go hungry. The United Nations estimates that the world’s population will increase by over 2 billion people, most living in urban areas. Annual cereal production must increase by 3 billion tons, and meat production has to grow over 200% by 2050 to meet the demand .

The surge in digital technologies available over the past few decades has transformed virtually every sector of the global economy, and agriculture is no exception. Information and communications technologies (ICTs) such as mobile phones and SMS messaging are changing the way farmers track weather patterns, access market information, interact with traders and government agencies, and get paid for their crops. Through its impact on agriculture, this digital revolution, nicknamed the “Fourth Industrial Revolution” by World Economic Forum Founder and Executive Chairman Klaus Schwab, has huge potential to reduce poverty throughout developing regions.
First, ICTs can increase farmers’ resilience to various shocks. Second, ICTs can aggregate smallholder farmers in remote locations, making it easier for agribusinesses and processors to work with them.
