• Course & the Pathway Connection
This course can be pursued independently or as part of “Digital Agriculture for SmallHolder Farmers” learning & reflection pathway. The pathway is designed to understand how digitalisation in smallholder farmer value chains (starting from pre-production all the way to retail & consumers) is impacting their decision making capacity and productivity. The 5-courses in the pathway cover the hardware and digital innovations that are being deployed from crop choice, agri-input procurement, production management, crop health management, nutrition management, harvest & post-harvest management. If you choose to enroll in the pathway, you'll have the option to receive an extra certificate upon completing the reflection exercise for the pathway. Enrolling to the pathway also gives you access to our facilitators via the AA Slack channel. You can review and enroll to the full pathway by following this link: https://lms.agribusiness.academy/catalog/index/cat:178
