Abstract: Agriculture plays a vital role in Viet Nam’s economy, accounting for an average of 17% of the national GDP and employing 40% of the national workforce. --- The biggest challenges to agriculture are information and communication gaps that lead to inefficiency between the hubs of the agriculture value chain, including an absence of actionable decision-support systems for farmers, resulting in resource mismanagement and unnecessary expenditure. --- The most promising technologies for addressing these issues include smartphones (that can send and receive information), QR codes, blockchain (that connect information and data across the value chain), cloud-based solutions (that enable storage and access of data and information across varied sources), Internet of things, unmanned aerial vehicles (that facilitate gathering of data and insights at high resolution), and data analytics (that enables conversion of data to information and knowledge products). --- Digital infrastructure is well established in Viet Nam; the primary constraint to digital agricultural solutions is digital illiteracy—i.e., stakeholders’ inability to use digital technologies to acquire information, communicate, and solve challenges in the value chain. --- The public sector, nonprofit organizations, private industry, and international community all have important and distinct roles to play in creating sustainable digital agricultural solutions in Viet Nam.
