We are AgriPredict
The effects of pest infestations and droughts on agricultural development have affected the national and regional food security. Small scale farmers do not have the tools to mitigate or prevent these diseases and predict weather conditions (most rely on natural seasonal conditions). Further, the current method for information dissemination is costly, extremely slow and at times ineffective. The control of agricultural pests is critical to sustainable agricultural development.
AgriPredict is a web and mobile-phone based agricultural risk management platform built on artificial intelligence and machine learning. We provide farmers with a tool to equip them with information that will drastically help to identify diseases, predict pest infestations and weather conditions. A farmer can simply take a picture of the suspected diseased plant and the system will on-demand give a diagnosis, options for treatment if required and location of the nearest agro-dealer. The farmer can also receive information on weather patterns. Our users can access our services on smart phone applications and on social media including Twitter, Facebook and Whatsapp. More importantly, the service can also be accessed on USSD platform to cater for the farmer that may not own a smartphone.
