Use Case Description

Agricultural extension finds itself at a time of crisis. Many of today’s agricultural extension services are suffering under bureaucratic centralised management structures. Squeezed by decentralization policies, diminishing public funds and the privatization of public services, they are urgently in need of change. The design is to come up with communication model using mobile technology to reinvent agricultural extension to improve the kind of information that is being disseminated to farmers.


e-Infrastructure Services Exploited

For storing and retrieving digital assets, AgriSERVICOMM adopted the Sci-GaIA Open Access Repository (OAR), in which specific sub-categories have been created for the use case.

The AgriSERVICOMM Science Gateway is a Service Provider of the GrIDP “catch-all” Identity Federation.
