In Tanzania, agriculture is the mainstay of the economy

  • It provides livelihood to about three quarters of the population (URT, 2011)
  • contributes 25.7 % to GDP (URT, 2009)
  • dominated by the smallholder farmers
  • Constraints to the growth of the sector are aggravated by lack of agricultural information (reliable & timely)

Use of ICTs could help overcome such constraints
