Medium-size telephone farmers benefit from and have the potential to support a thriving agricultural ecosystem, making use of it, but also by providing agricultural services and modern technology themselves, training their workers and helping them by subcontracting certain activities to smaller farmers and obtain
contracts to sell large quantities regularly themselves. This paper analyzes the presence of an ecosystem for medium size farmers based on interviews with 50 medium size farmers and indicates the expectations of these farmers with respect to such a system.
