Kusheh, na minem Fatu, en mi na koko farmer Hello, I am Fatu and I am a cocoa farmer: a Digital Farmer Field School for training in cocoa production and certification in Sierra Leone

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional

Abstract

This document reports on the development of a prototype Digital Farmer Field School (DFFS) called Kusheh, na minem Fatu, en mi na koko farmer (“Hello, I am Fatu and I am a cocoa farmer”). The DFFS provides an ICT-based alternative to traditional agricultural extension. More specifically, it offers a tablet-based substitute for the face-to-face certification training for cocoa farmers in Sierra Leone. The fact that gatherings of more than five people at a time were not allowed as a consequence of the Ebola outbreak triggered the development of the digital alternative to group training for cocoa farmers.
