Information about the project
AgriNeTT – promoting sustainable agriculture
AgriNeTT is an e-agriculture project that focuses on empowering the agriculture sector in the Caribbean by developing mobile apps that assist farmers and policy makers. The project aims to increase agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale farmers, particularly family farms, women and youth. The apps provide farmers with tools for farm financial management, crop prices, plant pest and disease diagnosis, and crop suitability. The apps receive data from Open Data platforms and have Data Analytic modules that mine the data for trends on a national level for policy makers. This model for development can be replicated in any developing country
