At a time when we are embracing a food systems approach to addressing the ever spiraling challenges of nutrition and breaking down silos to ensure nutrition is embedded across sectors, the task of engaging agriculture becomes increasingly important. This means not only getting closer to commercial agriculture, but also exploring how we can work with smallscale farmers who have often been bypassed in the past. African Farmers in a Digital Age is an excellent anthology, cocurated by Kofi Annan, Sir Gordon Conway, and Sam Dryden, that explores the future of African food systems and the role that digital solutions can play in overcoming the isolation of  smallholder farmers and speeding up rural development.Farming is one of  mankind’s oldest endeavors, and digital technology is one of its newest – and now the two need to come together. By thinking in terms not just of crops or yields or prices, but rather of an integrated food system that links all players in the agricultural economy, this publication allows us to see African agricultural issues in a new light. From mobile phones to big data, from nutrition to climate change, this collection covers it all, with  contributions from authors who have something powerful to say and the authority to be heard.
