Farmerline is a mobile and web-based
system that furnishes farmers and investors with relevant agro
industry content to improve productivity and increase income.
Farmerline bridges the information gap between rural farmers and
agro-industry sources in two ways:
Automated SMS Alerts: The SMS will
include advice on tackling pests or diseases, agricultural
techniques, optimum times to plant crops, available subsidies, as
well as weather forecasts, local fairs and crop prices.
Farmerline won the first and third
position in the Mobile Web Ghana Competition and Apps4africa Climate
Change Competition organized by the US Department of State
