ICT4griculture refers to the interaction between ICT and agriculture. It describes an emerging field focused on the enhancement of sustainable agriculture, food security, livestock production and rural development through improved information and communication processes. More specifically, ICT4Agriculture involves the conceptualisation, design, development, evaluation and application of innovative ways to use ICTs in the rural domain, with a primary focus on agriculture.The National ICT RDI Roadmap recognises that ICT can support enhanced agricultural production, principally by rendering support to emerging commercial farmers to improve their contribution towards increased food security and agricultural exports, as well as to mitigate environmental impact.
