Jagdish R.Kadam

It will likely have significant impacts on uplifting agriculture – enhancing agricultural production, better marketing and post-harvest activities, fostering agro-entrepreneurship and above all generating self-employment opportunities, which, in turn, can contribute to poverty reduction. By focusing on how agricultural extension can use ICTs for improving rural livelihoods, we need to move beyond narrow understandings of agriculturally specific ICT applications. This book intends to provide essential information on most important aspect of how ICT can be used to ameliorate the gloomy lot of rural poor.
