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.
