Information about the project
UjuziKilimo - Data engine for African agriculture industry
UjuziKilimo collects & analyses data to provide actionable insights that inform the agriculture industry. UjuziKilimo has a patent pending sensor device to collect real-time farm data and a platform to analyse millions of data points from sensors, satellite and across the value chains to generate actionable insights for the farmers and the industry players. The Platform through an algorithm analyses and matches the reading with recommendations, and sends appropriate recommendations to the farmer's phone via short messages. Through predictive analytics, we provide farmers with recommendations on suitable seeds, soil treatment methods, water level required, fertilization for optimum crop production, additional relevant agricultural information, and connection of farmers with suppliers of the necessary farm inputs and the average pricing of the inputs. Through the platform agri- input suppliers, service providers and banks have access to farmers directly in an organized system. Institutions interested in working with farmers find it easy to access a large pool of farmers directly.
