Potential for mobile apps in agri development

The use of Mobile Applications (apps) as a conduit for data collection and information sharing offers enormous benefits in commerce, education and development. Mobile apps have been central to handsets such as smartphones and tablets in the face of mobile evolution. Their capability to allow instant usage when on-the-go has enhanced greater collaboration and access to information among millions of users globally.

Information system vital for agri development

Information is power and the up-keeping of an effective and efficient information management system is paramount for NARI and the PNG National Agriculture Research Systems (NARS).

The maintenance and expansion of the Melanesian Agricultural Information Systems (MAIS), formerly the PNG National Agricultural Information System (NAIS), adds value in ensuring better management and usability of research information in the agriculture sector.
