Problem in Farming

  • Farming in Africa (smallholders) lack three major inputs: Financing, Technology & Knowledge, whereas; Individuals and stakeholders with capacity to provide these required inputs (finance, technology & knowledge) sit a gap away due to constraints like availability of time, extraneous land tenure systems amongst others that exists in the agricultural sector. In the past and presently, once an interest of farming is developed by an individual or an organization, one must individually go through painstaking efforts of acquiring lands through the tiresome land tenure system, gaining knowledge for farming, finding labor for field activities, and having time to monitor farms- an action that impedes the participation of individuals and organizations into commercial agri-business.
  • In other cases, if the decision is arrived to invest in existing farms, the farmer or investors are mostly unable to access all possible risks associated with the farms as there are little or no documented information kept by farmers to validate investment needs. This situation has made it almost impossible for potential young and elderly to participate in farming and agri-businesses- an action that poses a threat to food security and poverty reduction on the African continent and the World. With this situation, farming in Africa (Ghana) lacks effective investments both human and financial capital as potential actors with required resources are unable to participate in farming as an investment.

Solution

On this development SmartFarmer comes as a way of bridging the gap between resource holders and field actors, making it easier for farming to be embarked by both parties in a more commercial and profitable way for increased productivity and excellent returns on investments.
