Agriculture has been supported by rapid developments in information

Access Agriculture is requesting young people to propose innovative
ideas to make a business, or expand their existing business, around the
dissemination of agricultural videos. Through this competitive grant,
the most inspiring and promising young entrepreneurs will receive a
Digisoft smart projector.
This projector has an in-built computer and contains the entire Access Agriculture library with over 200 videos in more than 75 international and local languages. The smart projector comes with a battery and a portable solar panel, so videos can be shown without the internet or

attractive to youth and reach more women.
