Description

Knowledge management can play a pivotal role in enhancing agricultural productivity and addressing
the problem of food insecurity. If properly managed, it enables appropriate knowledge and
information to reach knowledge intermediaries and smallholder farmers in a timely manner. Such
delivery of knowledge and information undoubtedly minimizes the risk and uncertainty smallholder
farmers face from production to marketing of their produce. But, to effectively engage in agricultural
knowledge management, adequate mechanisms are needed for generating, capturing, and
disseminating knowledge and information through the use of effective processes and institutional
arrangements.
The major challenges inhibiting the use ICT in disseminating agricultural knowledge and information,
which includes the low level of access to ICT infrastructure and services, need to be addressed. The
existing potential for extending the current ICT infrastructure to reach rural farmers, coupled by the
presence of wide area radio service coverage across the country, should be exploited to implement
ICT-based knowledge and information dissemination in the short-term. Policy and investment
priorities that government and its partners should consider in order to promote cost-effective
knowledge management in agriculture have been highlighted.
Mobile phone platforms offer good opportunity for
reaching farmers and knowledge intermediaries, and their use for disseminating knowledge and
information should be explored and enhanced and design of interventions should benefit from
existing lessons and experiences of not only the northern region of Bangladesh but also the whole country.
