We are delighted to welcome new members to the FarmSmarter team.
Bright Nwokoro has joined us as software developer. He will be building an amazing service in the background to ensure our users get all the support they need in optimising their farm production.
Daniel Folorunso is our new full stack developer and will be working on taking the FarmSmarter app to the next level. Using the feedback from our farmer testers on our initial prototype, Daniel is working hard to get an even better version built for future users.
The prototype FarmSmarter app is currently being tested in the field by Nigerian smallholders.
We are delighted with the response from the testing team of farmers in three states in Nigeria; Oyo, Ogun and Nasawara. By using the prototype application the farmers have already identified crop diseases using the FarmSmarter AI disease identification tool developed for us by Manchester Metropolitan University, mapped their fields and established a thriving online farming forum with the support of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta.
User feedback is an essential part of addressing any issues that arise and requests for functions from our testing team. One of our testers says ‘None of the apps in the market is as rich as the FARMSMARTER App!’ but we are striving to improve as we develop the application towards a commercial launch.
