Farmer Management Solutions
Farmer management solutions are digitally enabled applications operated by a farmer group, cooperative, or related agribusiness (e.g., buyer, seller, service provider). These solutions provide farmer groups with a range of services that vary in complexity, but are typically built upon a database that holds basic information on individual farms or households. These data typically include their identification, location, plot size, contact information, a list of the crops they grow, and sometimes more detailed information such as their yield or loan history and the variety of seeds they use. Depending on the services a farmer group provides to its members, the solution may also collect group-level information such as services used by members, products sold by the group, inputs purchased, loans made, yields across farmers, and information on input providers and buyers.
