Rural Farmers Hub uses web- and mobile-based technology to fill the extension worker gap in the agricultural sector in Africa. It is similar to a tele-health application, but for crops and soil. Our core product, Capture, offers precision management of crop health & soil nutrients with cloud-based automated assessment that creates intelligent maps to plan precision fixing of identified defects.
