    • Hi Citra, yes you’re absolutely right and good solution too. One of the problems for people who live in suburb or outback is related to the flow of information. Given your solution to use internet, how do you manage to introduce internet to farmer?

      • The firsly, i should introduce for the farmer about internet realted the agriculture, how important internet used for giving knowledge for farmer.

        And the second, i should teach the farmer how to use internet to get informatin,for example: using smartphone that supported by nokia With Nokia Life Tools, farmers and other professions, can know the price so as not to become victims of the game price by the middlemen. “Nokia together with partners trying to empower them with things that are beneficial to life, Nokia Life Tools is an application menu that provides updated information every day. The information offered there are three areas, namely agriculture, education, and entertainment. Agricultural information lists the price at the retailers and manufacturers to a number of agricultural commodities, including fisheries.

        It is the way socializing internet to the farmer with cheap price but more usefull using internet not only by PC, but also by mobilephone.
