Field Level Online Service (agrinetbd.com) for Sustainable Agriculture
In Bangladesh we have hundreds of modern, sustainable agricultural technologies as well as new technologies are coming regularly with better solutions. As for example today we have technologies like submerge, salinity, drought tolerant rice varieties, sex pheromone trap, guti urea, but at the farm level adoption is not satisfactory due to lack of result oriented field level farmers to farmers motivation techniques. Intervention of online technologies can empower field level extension officers, farmers as well as people by presenting latest farming methods with successful farmers. As farmers are not able to communicate with extension officers or farmers of far distance for their excellent products sometimes they are depending on the local seed or pesticide businessmen rather extension officers. For this farmers are losing their money, good health, time and destroying environment for all livings. If appropriate information are supplied in the proper time that would be useful for farming. Our adopted, succeed technologies according to our locality should be focused through online by updating regularly that will motivate our farmers rapidly because anybody can see the successful production with technologies and communicate with respective farmers by this website. In these purpose agrinetbd.com has been produced and operated from Mirsharai upazila of Chittagong district. In this connected world we cannot pass even a day without information and communication technology (ICT). Internet is gaining popularity because of the huge expansion of mobile networks. The authors are grateful to a2i, Prime Minister’s Office, Bangladesh for national and international trainings about ICT, appropriate suggestions encouraged to produce the website.
