How it’s Done
Ojay Greene differentiates itself by Ustawihub a unique mobile technology innovation that offers smallholder farmers in their network real time support:
Agronomists in Ojay Greene send out text messages to smallholder farmers giving weekly alerts on Good Agricultural Practices. This increases their chances of high crop yields.
Smallholder farmers confirm receipt of text messages and raise queries, concerns and disease outbreak alerts as they happen to enable quick intervention and minimize episodes of crop failure or livestock disease outbreak as the case may be.
