Government’s use of digital technologies in the agriculture sector can improve service delivery and food system efficiency. Digital technology can provide real-time and tailored information to farmers, increase farmers’ access to financial services, and enable collaboration among agricultural stakeholders. Integrating digital technologies into the agricultural sector creates opportunities for better data collection and analytics, more effective information dissemination and feedback, and deployment of innovations across the agriculture value chain between public institutions and private-sector actors. Inclusive policies to govern digital technology in the agriculture sector will ensure benefits are shared and mitigate potential risks.
