AgI: Agricultural Information System

  AgI connects farmers from isolated rural communities to markets, to knowledge, and to each other. Farmers will have access to market price information, weather data, agricultural extension services, buyers and intermediaries, and relevant experts. Importantly, a synchronous communication module enable farmers to establish voice and data communication with peer farmers from other rural communities. The system supports a geography-based user interface that respects a range of written literacy levels. For instance, all market price information includes text representations and machine generated spoken audio.
