*Nicaragua is the second-poorest country of the Americas. It is now also the
Latin American country with the most capable web-based information
system<http://www.linuxjournal.com/content/nicaragua-builds-innovative-agricultural-information-system-using-open-source-software>
for
agriculture, thanks to open source
software.ALBAstryde<http://code.google.com/p/albastryde/> itself
is open source, and it is based on Django and jQuery. It allows the user to
play with the data, and its reach is further extended by a net of radio
stations which are broadcasting the numbers to remote peasants, who thereby,
for the first time ever, get up to date data on prices and general
production levels in the country. The implementation for the ministry of
agriculture of Nicaragua <http://magfor.simas.org.ni/> already contains live
data.*
