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 framework that can aid in easy achievement of such feat by basically leveraging on technological tools.
data to end hunger
Fooddata Nigeria is an agricultural data management start up aimed at building reliable indigenous agricultural produce database for use by researchers, farmers, investors, policy makers and all stakeholders, safeguarding our food security in the long run.
Our mission is to see the campaign and efforts against food insecurity and hunger materialize by ensuring availability and accessibility of open data for agriculture, for the benefits of policy makers and the general public.
Our core services involve data collection, harmonizing, analysis and security. Also, from our data, we will be able to make projections and engage policymakers. We shall also train extension agents in using technological approach for easier extension service delivery as well as prepare plans and budgets for ministries of agriculture.
Our long term vision is to run private and independent agricultural extension services, leveraging on ICT tools. This will go a long way in creating opportunities for youth employment.
Our DATa Collection tool
We have developed and launched an android mobile app on google play store, for improved extension service delivery and ease of documentation. The mobile application will help in convenient data collection and captures the extension agent’s location, ensuring On-farm and genuine data are being submitted.
