O. Folorunso, Sushil K. Sharma , H.O.D Longe and K. Lasaki

Internet access and agent technology promises to revolutionize the landscape of agricultural business. Already E-commerce is clearly beginning to have a major impact in the agricultural sector. The way people go about purchasing agricultural products is of great concern. Sometimes buyers have to travel far distances to get agricultural products and getting the right quality is not guaranteed. Also, various market prices cannot be compared because buyers do not have all the time and resources to visit every agricultural farm. Hence, the need for an electronic means of trading called Agriculture Electronic Commerce (Agric-EC), which would help farmers and other buyers, make their appropriate business transactions online. To achieve this, a prototype Agric-EC site would be developed using web service technologies as the communication infrastructure between the buyers and the farms server using an Agent sheet simulator. This paper focuses on how mobile agents, a new technology can be incorporated into an Agriculture E-commerce system to aid buying and selling in the agricultural sector and more importantly, how prices can be retrieved from Agricultural electronic commerce sites in cases where the buying agent recommends the best price.
