We’ve come to a time in civilization when raw materials and resources are becoming ever more scarce. When we take into consideration the pollution, increased emissions, soil degradation and water depletion, we know the sustainability challenges that loom in the horizon are real. But into this same scenario, we lately have the entry of 3G mobile networks worldwide. Although agriculture and mobile apps technology may appear disconnected on the face of it, there is already an increasing amount of evidence to suggest that making use of mobile and cloud-based applications not only addresses these sustainability challenges, but also creates financial value for both large agriculture-based companies and smallholder farmers.
