CommCare for Agricultural Extension Workers

Agricultural extension and advisory is one of the most researched and proven techniques of improving yields and incomes for farmers. Trained agents visit communities to ensure the dissemination of current best practice, helping organize cooperatives or implement secondary programs.

Developing countries continue to spend large sums of resources promoting agriculturally led development through agricultural extension work. However, these agricultural workers are expected to travel extensively across their countries while ensuring they maintain consistent and high quality work – a nearly impossible task. Furthermore, agents receive limited training, resulting in short, infrequent visits where the complexities of agricultural issues are not easily addressed and key steps in farmer advising process are skipped.

Dimagi technology helps alleviate spatial and consistency issues for agricultural extension agents.
