          Abstract

          Digital technologies hold the potential to boost supply-side capacities in African food and agriculture. Mobile phones are the most widely used digital technology across the continent. They can facilitate business operations, either as a communication tool or via dedicated services offered to farmers and others in the agricultural value chain. They can thereby enable access to information, input and output markets or financial services (Baumüller, 2018; Malabo Montpellier Panel, 2019a). Other as yet less widely used digital technologies include computers, tablets, 3D printers or various data collection devices such as sensors, GPS trackers or drones. Often, a combination of various technologies is used.
