Advances in mobile technological application are paving the way for the development of new innovative tools that can facilitate the integration of information and knowledge, using local knowledge and crowdsourcing technologies in effective decision-making on land management strategies for improved agricultural production. The rapid expansion of internet accessibility through mobile phone networks together with simple mobile applications provides new opportunities to connect farmers, extension workers, development planners, and policymakers with site-specific knowledge and information on land potentials. Leveraging the emerging technological trend, the Land-Potential Knowledge System (LandPKS) project presents a suite of mobile apps that allows individuals and organizations to use a mobile phone to determine land potential at a specific location based on local and global knowledge and information.
