As in many regions of the world, people in rural India often lack access to knowledge that's more readily available to people in urban areas. Although rural telecenters are becoming more common, developing content that's presented in local languages, relevant to users, and delivered in an immediately usable form is a challenge here and in rural areas across the globe. To address this, an agricultural portal for rural farmers in India uses innovative database systems and information retrieval techniques. In so doing, it both improves service and addresses connection costs and constraints.
