Verdant aims at providing agricultural data science, market information, managerial support, and access to financial services to rural farmers for improved food production using mobile phones.
All services are location based and tailored to the farmer's specific crop choice and location.
The Verdant Pilot
We are conducting a pilot project where Verdant for smart mobile devices and accessible by low-end phones through text messaging and USSD are ran and tested with 50 small-holder and 50 Urban farmers in Katsina, Nigeria.
We hope that at the end of the pilot, farmers will not only have increased production and ease of access to market and finance but full history of crops from when they are sown through to harvest and their route to market; chronicling chemical and fertilizer use, including type, rate, and date applied as well as date of crop sale, amount, location of buyers, etc.
Our business strategy is to enter into a focused or niche market where we can offer a higher standard of service to our special clients which are generally rural farmers. A holistic approach towards enhancing all the activities in the agricultural process for crop farmers is entrenched in our corporate strategy. The Pilot enables us to further study farmer behaviour and response to our services so as to prepare us to better serve the generality of our customers.
Verdant for Smallholder, rural farmers.
Using low-end phones USSD, SMS and voice services, rural farmers can interact with the system without hitches. This eliminates the need for the rural farmer to be tech savvy or to have a smart phone and at the same time provides incredible job opportunities for those that will serve as administrators.
