Summary of Extension steps and potential Information Communication Technology (ICT) application 

General comments:

  • Effective application of ICT in extension requires a needs-driven focus, credible content and trust in the message and the messenger,
  • Farmers are more likely to adopt when they see fellow farmers applying a technique, and
  • An integrated approach using a range of ICT and “traditional” options should be considered.
