The growth of ICT in the last decade has provided opportunities to overcome some of the challenges faced by the agriculture sector. Recent developments such as the increase in the use of mobile-broadband access devices, the Internet of things (IoT), drones, smart networks, capacity for big data analytics, and artificial intelligence have given stakeholders some key tools and technologies to improve production and marketing processes, for example, in agriculture and associated fields.
