"At UjuziKilimo, we are delivering a platform that advances data-driven decisions for the world’s smallholder farmers by collecting, organizing and making sense of agricultural data."
For example, UjuziKilimo, a Kenyan startup, uses big data and analytic capabilities to transform farmers into a knowledge-based community, with the goal of improving productivity through precision insights. This helps to adjust irrigation and determine the needs of individual plants. The process improves farm productivity and reduces input waste by
When farmers met earlier this year for Innovation Week at the University of Nairobi, most of them gathered around a stand where Dennis Rapong’o, an attendant, demonstrated how to use Ujuzi kit, a sensor-based soil testing system.
Rapong’o held a yellow instrument the size and make of a tablet in his hand that had a chord he inserted into the gro
"My first dream was to have some device that any farmer - like my mother or a village woman - could just stick into the ground, and within a few minutes get the precise information about what kind of inputs they need, what kinds of crops will do well, and where can they get those inputs," he said.
The service is operated by extension agents who
Take agriculture. Start-up UjuziKilimo provides tailored recommendations on planting via text message to farmers by using sensors to measure and analyse soil qualities. And recognizing the increased demand for farming data and analytics, Already more than 70% of African farmers have used information and communications technology, with 90% percent s
"An agricultural technology company that brings precision farming technology to small scale farmers in Kenya, enabling them produce more from their farm, curbing hunger and food insecurity. Using sensors and data analytics to provide precision farming knowledge to smallscale farmers." Bosire talks to CNBC Africa.
Local small scale farmers are set will benefit for Sh18million worth of technical support as part of a social-economic recovery initiative by an agricultural technology solutions provider.
The agricultural technology solutions firm UjuziKilimo has received support from Wadson Ventures; an Africa focused early-stage venture capital house.
On a farm in southwestern Kenya, in the small town of Kisii, a field agent reads data off a yellow square-shaped monitor, which has wires running into a smaller device connecting to the soil. It takes him about five minutes to read data regarding the soil’s PH, water levels, and disease and pests found on it. In almost two minutes, the data is sent
"As a small scale farmer in Kenya, I always have too much to worry about. from the bad and erratic weather that we have been experiencing, coupled with soil degradation, market uncertainities and more. We no longer know what inputs or fertilizers that will work for us. It's just trial and error"
There is nothing as scary as knowing that the world will need to produce more food in the next 40 years than it has produced in the last 10000 years combined. However it is an opportunity for the small scale farmers to feed the world.
"Over 70% of all the food is produced by rural small holder farmers. As the population increases demanding more food, this small farmers are the key to feeding the world, only if they transition from traditional farming to practicing knowledge based farming"
We are commited to building sustainable solutions to end hunger in all its forms by 2030 and to achieve food security.
