Mobile phone-based technologies and services have the potential to play a major role in improving agriculture systems in developing countries, but to date few approaches have achieved the scale or financial sustainability necessary to have significant impact.

In addition, this paper also explores how call centers may be used to further address agricultural development challenges in the future.
