Abstract

This systematic literature review (SLR) aims to synthesise the empirical evidence on the usability and impact evaluations of the mobiles-based agricultural market information services (AMIS) on the SSFs in developing countries. The results showed that, while providing access to agricultural market information (AgriMI) through mobiles-based AMIS to allow rural SSFs to acquire it, enabling them to sell their agricultural commodities at higher prices has accounted for why numerous mobile-based AMIS initiatives have emerged in some developing countries, there have been general differences in the usability and impact evaluations of such services on the rural SSFs.
