User model can be defined as a machine-readable representation of user characteristics of a system. We have developed a user model that considers users with physical, age-related or contextual impairment and can be used to personalize electronic interfaces to facilitate human machine interaction. This paper presents a case study of exploiting this Inclusive User Model to personalize an electronic agriculture application. The e-agriculture system aims to help farmers in reporting crop diseases electronically and getting help from experts. We have integrated the user model with this application so that it can be used by users with a wide range of perceptual, cognitive and motor impairment. Once users signed up to the user modeling system, their profile is carried with them regardless of the type of device they are using. The paper presents brief detail of both the user model and the e-Agriculture system along with description of a user study conducted on the system. © 2014 Springer International Publishing.
