AgriCo. A mobile app for info, market and financing for urban farmers.
AgriCo is a mobile app designed to help improve the productivity and profitability of urban farming by providing farmers with best production practices (in rich multimedia formats), farm management tools, access to input, produce markets and micro-credits. With experience in horticultural and urban farming advisory service delivery, the team is seizing an opportunity to reach even more farmers by developing this mobile application.
The app is designed to run on a “Free-mium” based model in which certain contents and value-added services will only be available on subscription. Other revenue streams include commissions on referrals for input suppliers and produce up-takers.
In the future, we are looking at integrating different data sources and AI for precision agriculture to give live, fast and personalized suggestions and recommendations for production problems, weather forecasts and market intelligence.
