    The mobile phone is a great way to share climate information in a timely manner since most farmers have access to mobile phones.

    I totally agree with you Cathy. The use of a mobile phone in communicating relevant Climate Information is more appropriate to busy farmers because it is not as disruptive to them as would be the case if formal meetings were organised by extension staff, given that the majority of farming households own a mobile phone. The message (SMS) can also be stored on the phone for a long time for future reference.
