Use of Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) in Crop Production

Authors(1) :-Bhavesh Kataria

The rapid advancement in Information and Communications Technologies (ICTs) has given rise to new applications that were impossible just few years ago. Agriculture is an important sector with the majority of the rural population in developing countries depending on it. ICT or Information and Communications Technology in simple terms, can be defined as the basket of technologies, which assist or support in storage, processing of Data/Information, or in dissemination/ communication of Data/Information, or both. ICT thus includes technologies such as desktop and laptop computers, software, peripherals and connection to the Internet that are intended to fulfill information processing and communication functions. In this paper I analysed how ICTs used to evaluate scenarios of changing demographic, economic, and technological and agro climatic circumstances affecting agricultural production
