  • Product Description

China is a predominantly rural country to improve agricultural production and food security throughout the nation. As the necessary tools of developing modern agriculture, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can facilitate changes both in social and economic aspects. This research project is about China’s agricultural ICTs development in a rural area--Miyun County-- to discover how people navigate and transform the ICTs in the Chinese context. The work explores how the Agricultural Information Institute (AII) associated with the Miyun Science and Technology Committee (STC) used ICTs to improve farmers’ agricultural activities by the help of the agricultural technicians with the use of the smart phones and laptops, and how the ICTs affected agriculture at the village level in Miyun County in the year 2012. This program is one of the first research studies that connects ICTs with land policy. The ICT program is the first to consider small farmers’ farming abilities in China’s rural areas. There was no precedent for the government to provide smart phones or laptops to help every farmer at the grassroots level.
