PROBLEMS:
* Farmers unable to detect crop pest infestations and crop diseases on time.
* Farm produce from farmers in the rural areas been bought by middlemen at very low prices.
* Low farm yields.
* Post-harvest losses of farm produce.
We have built an end-to-end farmer support system by:
* Developing a mobile-connected electronic device and a mobile app that uses Artificial Intelligence, data analytics and machine learning to help farmers detect crop diseases at the onset and pest infestations. This way, we have increased the farmers yield by 56% for the over 14,000 farmers that we work with.
* We also set up a 20-tonne-per-day-capacity factory where we buy the farmer’s produce and process it for sale. This cushions the farmers from selling their produce to middlemen at punitively low prices. This has increased farmers’ income by over 45% and also reduced farm produce wastage by 35%.
* We also supply hybrid seeds on debt analyzing their credit score through blockchain tech
