Smart Agriculture

Smart Irrigation

Smart Agriculture digital solutions are especially important since climate change poses a threat to the region. Especially, because Rwandan farmers are used to dry and wet season. Farmers need to adapt to changing seasons taking natural disasters like floods or droughts into account to avoid food shortages. Consequently, there is a need for farmers to monitor these changes in real time for the right decision making.

For this purpose, Smart Irrigation offers a solution while using an IoT system to analyze real time data about soil parameters. As a result, it enables efficient irrigation and provides a viable option for resilience and sustainable agriculture.

    CDS4A

    Unpredictable weather and effects of climate change like floods or droughts make it difficult to ensure food security and lead to food shortages in Africa.

    That is why, CDS4A was born in order to improve food security while providing recommendations based on GIS data about which plants grow best in which region at which time of the year. This allows smallholder farmers to plant accordingly and maximize their yield.

    With the help of data visualization of the expected amount of rainfall, soil pH-value and GIS mapping, farmers are able to plant the right crops for given local conditions.

    IoT Sensors in Agriculture

    Despite the challenge of food security for a rapidly growing population, farmer’s incomes are also at risk. That is due to the lack of monitoring of irrigation water affecting productivity, pesticide costs and use of chemicals.

    BazaFarm proposes a solution to this challenge with its devices measuring soil moisture and temperature in real time. As a result, it helps to schedule irrigation based on accurate live data from the farm and reduce water. Farmers can save up to 15% of water and reduce the use of pesticides significantly.
