"When looking at the most pressing challenges Africa is facing, food security tops the charts. With a smart solution combining Artificial Intelligence with agriculture, AgriPredict can help farmers be more effective and provide for their communities during a time when their services are desperately needed. AgriPredict has had tremendous traction in their business despite being early-stage. The team is the strongest team I have had the pleasure of coming across during my time working in entrepreneurship support in Southern Africa, and I believe that they have the skills, passion and drive to take this service to the next level. After having worked closely with Mwila Kangwa and Cassandra Mtine, I can attest to their character and coachability. I have full confidence in saying that supporting AgriPredict means supporting more sustainable agriculture in Zambia, Africa and beyond." - Auri Evokari

AgriPredict provides cutting edge tools to help you manage risks such as droughts, pests and diseases.
AgriPredict is an agri tech company that leverages artificial intelligence in agriculture as a risk and disaster management tools. Farmers too often experience droughts, diseases and pest infestations that affect livestock and crops, leading to loss of yield and investments. With our tool, farmers will now be informed and know when to expect droughts, plant diseases as well as the nearest source for treatment if needed. In this way, farmers are given the advantage.
We believe that a good yield puts a smile on a farmers face.
Our service also includes yield forecast using diverse data sources and sensors. This will enable farmers to estimate the yield expected over a specific plot of farmland. We help our clients understand their expected yield as a farmer, organisation or government.
AgriPredict was founded in September, 2016 at a hackathon called AgriHack. AgriPredict was the winner of the competition and won $1000 USD as seed funding. This served as the foundation for a data company that is driven by change and impact.
The Swedish Government through SNV Netherlands agreed to fund and support the development of the AgriPredict platform. The startup funding by SNV under the SILMS (Sustainable Land Management System) project helped advance AgriPredict.
Pilot & Scale Up
We focused on the development of the application and creating strategic partnerships. The pilot will begin in October with 22 000 farmers in the Eastern Province in Zambia. The pilot includes training sessions, site visits, feedback from farmers and continuous improvements on the application.
