A mobile phone ranking system is being developed to help Sri Lankan pineapple farmers identify suppliers of good quality planting material and avoid buying diseased plants that could destroy entire crops.

The initiative is part of efforts to make more use of information and communication technology like mobile phones to improve livelihoods and incomes of farmers.

It looked at how smallholders could be better integrated into agricultural value chains, reducing their transaction costs and structural barriers that limit efficiency.
