Abstract:

Information and communication technology has caused (r)evo­lution in many industries, and the agricultural sector is not an exception. The paper deals with the use of mobile applications that have informative, educational and advisory services in agricultural activities. The paper aims to present the features and benefits of the use of mobile applications in agri­cultural production. The use of these applications enables the spread of spe­cialized knowledge in certain agricultural sectors practically and easily, and at the same time contributes to the increase of efficiency in agricultural pro­duction. The link between the public advisory service and farmers and the dissemination and exchange of good practices among farmers are impor­tant features of mobile applications in agriculture aimed at raising the over­all competitive advantage. The research is expected to prove the role of mo­bile applications in the development of the third green revolution in the ag­ricultural sector.
