Digital Green helps improve farming practices

12 April 2013

Bookmark and Share

Digital Green combines technology and social organization to improve cost-effectiveness and broaden the community participation of existing agricultural extension systems.

By building on existing social linkages and using technology, Digital Green seeks to amplify the impact of agriculture extension workers who help farmers become more productive.

Digital Green records live demonstrations of agricultural practices by experts, transmits them to a large database and distributes them on DVDs to local organizations for dissemination among small and marginal farmers. Digital Green uses low-cost and portable technology viz. camcorders, TVs and Pico projectors for the production and dissemination of videos.

 Videos are based on content identified by the community, feature local farmers, are created in local dialects, and are duly checked for accuracy by agricultural experts. These screenings are mediated by an expert to help farmers adopt the practices as well as monitor their status after adoption.
