Mobile Market Information Systems (MIS) for farmers in emerging markets.
Over the past few years many services have been created that give farmers in emerging markets access to market information directly through their mobile phone. There are many success stories and evidence that farmers can benefit from accessing timely and relevant market information via their mobile. However, many MIS have also failed.
It’s necessary to set out a checklist of requirements to making a MIS successful.
Involved people are providers that are both planning to launch a MIS or already running an MIS.
