Technology has played an increasingly important role in the agricultural sector in Kenya. Here are some ways that technology is being used in agriculture in Kenya:
Mobile apps for farming information: There are several mobile apps available that provide farmers with information on weather patterns, market prices, and best practices for farming.
Precision agriculture: Precision agriculture uses technology such as drones and sensors to gather data about soil and crop conditions, which can help farmers make more informed decisions about irrigation, fertilization, and pest management.
Digital marketplaces: Digital marketplaces such as Twiga Foods and Farmshine are connecting farmers with buyers and providing them with access to credit and other financial services.
Agribusiness management systems: Agribusiness management systems such as Farmforce and FarmERP are helping farmers to manage their operations more efficiently, from seed to sale.
Mobile money: Mobile money services such as M-Pesa are providing farmers with a safe and convenient way to receive payments for their crops and to purchase inputs such as seeds and fertilizer.
Overall, technology is helping to improve the efficiency and profitability of agriculture in Kenya, and is providing farmers with access to new markets and resources.
