The use of digital technologies is a prerequisite for effective knowledge sharing in the modern agricultural sector, and online access to information is especially important in conditions of mobility and limited physical contacts due to COVID-19.
“Continuing education and the introduction of new agricultural practices and innovative technologies are essential elements for the development and maintenance of a successful agricultural business. To this end, USAID, in partnership with the Agriobiznes.md initiative, has developed an agricultural digital library that will become a safe platform for access to agricultural information and educational materials for a wide audience in Moldova – farmers, youth, academia and the diaspora who are interested in developing business in the country. … We are delighted that more development partners and local organizations have joined this initiative, and the amount of educational resources available to farmers and students is constantly growing. We are convinced that the online agricultural library will become a valuable digital tool for the agricultural sector in Moldova and will help accelerate innovation and use of the latest technologies in this sector, ”the head of the USAID mission in Moldova emphasized.
