Women in Agriculture Cover - GSMAAgriculture is the main source of income and employment for 70% of the world’s poor living in rural areas. Yet, access to crucial farming information and technologies such as weather forecasts, planting information and market prices remains a critical issue.

GSMA mWomen and GSMA mAgri have developed a resource, the Women in Agriculture: a Toolkit for Mobile Services Practitioners, which provides MNOs, development practitioners and members of the wider mobile industry with a step-by-step guide to develop women-focused mobile agricultural services.
