For Access Agriculture -

it must be visual,
it must be for farmers
it must feature farmers
it must be in local languages.

The "farmer to farmer" video platform is approaching its fifth birthday and has many stories to share.
Videos being distributed by DJ's onto $10 mobile phones.
Farmers paying for DVD's to improve their incomes.
Farmers copying the steps shown on the videos to grow and market new crops
Using the videos to improve household incomes
Watching quality videos in remote locations without electricity, internet or mobile phone connection.

A full demonstration of how Access Agriculture can reach farmers using local languages will be provided. How can the "smart projector" improve the reach of videos and effectiveness. How come the DVD is not yet dead.
