Plantwise develops new app for farmers

CABI’s Plantwise team along with App development specialists White October have designed an app which provides in country extension workers with a portable electronic library of pest management factsheets. These factsheets are designed to help extension workers give farmers the most appropriate, effective and safe recommendations they can.

The app, that aims to improve world food security, has already received some good local press and radio coverage .
