The issue of knowledge in increasing productivity for the agricultural sector in developing countries cannot be over emphasized. As much as appropriate knowledge is important, the channels in which it is disseminated is essential, as information can be distorted if the wrong platform is being used. Sadly wrong information is as good as no knowledge, and the result may sometimes be worse. Most importantly, the use of digital platforms in disseminating appropriate information should be promoted. However, more work needs to be done in the area of farmers' education.

As it is said, knowledge is power, however, knowing how to use it brings great results
Aside from infrastructural challenges, low literacy of farmers has been a major bane to increase the adoption of digital platforms to access information. A large percentage of smallholder farmers still find it difficult to use the numerous digital platforms, built for the purpose of accessing relevant information to their business operations. This is of great concern and has to be addressed in order to achieve the needed change in the agricultural productivity index in developing countries.

Other key stakeholders need to quit the lip service of improving smallholder farmers' livelihood and get to work ensuring that food producers' literacy levels are improved. Increased literacy will breed generations of farmers who will be able to diagnose their problems, identify the root cause and seek knowledge by themselves to proffer solutions rather than what people bring to them as solutions to perceived problems by third parties. Therefore, all of us must be involved at all levels and build structure into our operations to ensure that farmers' literacy levels enjoy a new and better dimension.
