Our digital systems are farmer-led. Smallholders and young people playing key roles in the design and development of our record keeping tools that support farmers to keep accurate logs of profit and loss an analyse trends across various on-farm enterprises.
We are now able to back this information up with real-time weather data via weather stations from partner organisation Climate Edge. Their NEXO weather stations are low-cost & include sensors for analysing temperature & moisture that can be played straight back to farmers via their mobile phones.
Working with farmers, youth groups and extension workers in Kenya, Uganda and Peru we have explored how these key data points help farmers understand farm conditions & test different practices to respond to challenges.
Understanding changes in climate patterns is vital for farming. We put this information in the hands of smallholders, empowering them to make informed decisions.
