This discussion paper will cover the important role of ICT in the provision of extension and advisory services (EAS). EAS have been defined as “the dissemination of expert agriculture knowledge and practices” (Toyama, 2011). The communication from extension and advisory services is complex because it comes from many sources — government, universities, NGOs, private sector companies — and it involves not just information but hands-on communication. Many of the farmers who need to be served in developing countries are illiterate. The information conveyed through extension consists of data (information), knowledge (simple skills), training (advanced skills and techniques) and education (where use of information requires critical thinking).
