The challenge

African farmers have in general extremely low yields compared to developed world. The world of African farming is disconnected and ineffective.

The solution

African farmers have extremely low yields compared to developed world, African farming is disconnected and ineffective. The company combines data from satellites, weather stations and numerical weather models to provide farmers and related services with data supporting their farm management decisions–from suggestions when to plant, estimating how their crops grow and advising how they can best support their crops, to suggesting optimal time for harvests.
