Digital agricultural platform launched PDF Print E-mail
THE first digital agricultural platform, the Electronic-Agricultural Research Network, that aims at improving the livelihoods of Africa’s small-scale farmers has been launched.

The electronic platform was launched by Makerere University’s Faculty of Social Sciences and the University of Nairobi in conjunction with Canada’s International Development Research Centre.

The project will last two years.
