Towards creating actionable knowledge in rice farming systems in Northern Ghana: the role of information systems

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference paperAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Information systems have been estimated to contribute to information provision and actionable knowledge creation for decision-making in rice farming systems. This, however, has been questioned within literature; suggesting not much impact on actionable knowledge creation for decision-making in rice farming systems. The study launches a probe into what information systems exist in rice farming systems in northern Ghana, their characteristics, their role in actionable knowledge creation, and opportunities to improving their relevance and impact in rice farming systems.
