WEBINAR | Introducing WeFarm

4 October 2016 | Webinar (Members Only)

In this one hour webinar you will know more about WeFarm. 

WeFarm is an innovative service that connects small-scale farmers with no internet to crowdsourced information. In just 18 months since launching, WeFarm has scaled to 76,500 farmers in Kenya, Uganda and Peru who have shared 11.8 million pieces of farming knowledge via SMS messaging. 

By capturing and storing this information online, WeFarm is building a unique bank of rural agricultural knowledge from communities without access to Internet. WeFarm then analyses this user-generated content to identify and predict trends and create game-changing data and insights for businesses, governments and NGOs. 

At this stage, WeFarm offers partners real-time insights into their own supply chains by identifying their producers' challenges and most discussed issues, but over the next few years, their goal is to provide aggregated information into entire regions, crops or markets.
