A CABI-led study has revealed that there is evidence of the benefits of chatgroups to human health, which can also be replicated in plant health.

The research analyzed the opportunities and pitfalls of using chat groups for plant health systems and examined the conditions for strengthening chatroom functions. It also considered the possibility of replicating reported successes in healthcare settings to plant health systems.

The scientists from CABI, who were joined by colleagues including from the Knowledge, Technology, and Innovation group at Wageningen University and the University of Lusaka, Zambia, focused their attention on chatgroup usage under the Plantwise program in Ghana, Kenya, Uganda, and Sri Lanka.

Benefits can be replicated in plant health
Dr. Dannie Romney, an author of the research—which was published in CABI One Health journal—and who is Senior Global Director, Development Communication and Extension, said, “Our findings show that there is evidence of the benefits of chatgroups to human health which can be replicated in plant health.”
