The concern for availability and accessibility of agricultural data to curb food insecurity has become a global one. As a group, we have come up with a synergistic framework that uses digital extension service to enable easy data collection, harmonization, analysis, and use – to drive impacting changes in the agricultural value chains.
data to end hunger
Fooddata Nigeria is an agricultural data management organization driven by ICT-based extension delivery system, aimed at building reliable indigenous agricultural produce database for use by farmers, investors, policy makers, researchers, agricultural development intervention projects, and all stakeholders, safeguarding our food security in the long run.
We are committed to improving smallholder farmers livelihood through market aggregation and better prices, filling knowledge gap and information deficit – to enhance production scale, and strengthening farmer’s cooperatives, which position them as stakeholders that contribute to making decisions that affects them as well as being the authentic beneficiaries of several interventions targeted at them – all through their own data that would be ethically used in line with their consent.
- Data into assets – These data would be available as both freemium and premium data.
- Farmer’s Education – We shall educate farmers on sustainable agriculture, latest production practices, e.t.c.
- Planning – From our data, we will make production and market projections to help farmers plan properly on choice of crops to plant more or less as well as give them price advantage through market aggregation.
- Budgeting and Policy – Through our database, we shall develop realistic and impacting budget and policy for institutions, measure investment performances and ensure transparency.
Our long term vision is to ensure that agricultural extension and advisory service is sustainable, cost effective, completely digitized and tailored to farmers needs by improving our team and technology capabilities to improve efficiency.
