Agricultural activities are time-bound and, the impacts of the COVID-19 on agriculture are currently under scrutiny. COVID-19 has also changed the dominant discourses in agricultural research. This study seeks to understand the dominant discourses in the impact of COVID-19 on agriculture and aims to identify the potential avenues of information technology interventions. This research study uses a qualitative research method, i.e., thematic analysis. In this research, peer-reviewed research articles are predominantly used as secondary data. Various themes and sub-themes that emerged from these research articles are classified into four main themes: (1) Farmer lockdown experience; (2) Horticulture, Digital transformation and COVID-19; (3) Low productivity and urgent need of technology adoption; (4) Other themes This research finds the dominant discourses in the horticulture sector during the COVID-19 pandemic and how information technology intervenes to meet and or control these challenges.
