the Power of SmartCane
Support for all
We believe in supporting every member of the farming community, from farmers to technical staff. Our satellite-derived information and agronomic advice are provided in the local language, promoting inclusivity and enabling effective communication across all levels.
We deliver solution-oriented, offline accessible information, unlike other services that use complex dashboards that rely heavily on the internet. Our SMS messages and maps condense complex data into easily understandable formats, ensuring simplicity, offline access, and ease of implementation.
Data collection made easy
We understand the challenges of data collection and its impact on farmers' accessibility. That's why we employ a network of ambassadors recruited from farmers to collect field data for model verification. By handling data collection and processing, we alleviate the burden on our clients and reduce their workload.
We recognise that every client is unique, with diverse operational models and information requirements. Our versatile technical-toolbox allows us to tailor our services to meet your specific needs, ensuring scalability and personalised support.
