Accurate and timely information is essential for making right decisions. It is widely acceptable that information plays a significant role in the new economy standards, where success mainly depends on having access to the right information at the right time. Digital divide makes access to information sources a difficult and time consuming process for rural people. Additionally, the problem is bigger for mobile workers such as farmers, cattle raisers and agriculturalists. The distance between the information sources and the rural areas together with possible geographical obstacles prevents the propagation of communication facilities as well as the effective information diffusion. That situation expands the digital divide and the need for bridging that gap is more urgent than ever. The Ypaithros information platform fills this need by putting together traditional information means with new communication technologies.
