Intel Boosting Economic Growth in Rural Communities

The International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) is working with Intel to drive greater food security, job creation and long-term economic growth for farmers and their families in developing countries. Goals for IFAD and Intel are to increase small farmers’ access to Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based knowledge platforms via a new Intel software suite called eAgro that will help small farmers with more informed decision making on key aspects including seed and fertilizer selection, harvest planning and sales management.
