Imagine a farmer who…
- sells his/her produce to the international market through his mobile phone.
- gets real time price information and doesn’t have to deal with brokers
- gets weather alerts before mother nature decides to unleash it’s fury
- connects to the farmer next door to buy or sell together on large scale
- finds nearest farm stores with a click of a button
- finds help from farm experts
And a government that spends less on agricultural census
