This research was inspired by the growing number of initiatives in the mobile agriculture space that are attempting to enhance and extend the reach of extension services through the use of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and mobile technology.  Research for this case study was conducted over two weeks in November 2012 and in Nairobi, the Rift Valley and Central Province.  The possibility that ICTs can extend the reach of existing information channels also means that they can be used to overcome barriers that currently limit women farmers’ access to information.
