Agriculture is one of the dominant fields that shape the socioeconomic development of any country. Technological advancements and innovations served as tools to share knowledge and practices of agricultural activities and make better lives for farmers, traders, policy makers, and the overall society. It is evident that Knowledge has become a very important factor in production, food security, education, poverty alleviation, and other millennium development goals. This paper, points out the a gap on how the existing body of knowledge about e-agriculture is built in terms of research policies, theorization, methodological tools, success/failure, and future trends. Aiming to fill this gap, our paper offers a systematic review of the e-agriculture literature based on Heeks (2006) that help understanding the linkages between the needs assessment, adoption of ICT in agricultural value chains, outreach/limitations of ICT in agricultural, diffusion of e-agricultural applications, and the impact of these technological innovations on the society.
