Plantix- A Mobile-Based Crop Advisory Application
Date published: Dec. 8, 2022
Plantix, a mobile crop advisory app for farmers, extension workers, and gardeners, was developed by PEAT GmbH. This application identifies issues associated with crop production and proposes solutions. It analyzes pictures of affected crops using artificial intelligence, provides advisory services for the entire farming cycle (seed to seed), and shares farmers’ experiences within communities. Farmers can access local weather, acquire trusted agricultural advice throughout the season, and receive disease alerts regarding nearby diseases spreading in their area.
The FTF Bangladesh Digital Agriculture Activity (hereafter referred to as “the Activity”) supported the pilot of the digital tool Plantix, a mobile crop advisory app, that identifies issues associated with crop production and proposes solutions. The Activity objective was to increase the availability of appropriate and gender-sensitive agricultural digital tools.
