1. The digital database of farmers will be a useful and quite an innovative tool to manage the farmer and farming activities. The drone technology will ensure timely surveillance and alert thereon.
2. On the back of the digital solution, it will be a platform linking our database with the Mobile Network Operators – MNOs. This will enhance the use of mobile phones in almost all transactions between us and the farmer. Mobile phones and mobile money thereon has a deep penetration in Tanzania and hence provision of credit and repayments of loans will be trough the mobile phones. Also since every farmer will have a unique identi ty, payment for the sale of harvests will be through the unique mobile number.
3. Information on weather, input supplies, proper agronomy practices, market prices and any other information like farming budget will be provided to all registered farmers. This will mean a signi cant transformation in the model at which farming is carried out at Kiteto.
4. The storage facilities will issue an electronic test result of the stock delivered at the ware house. This will be linked to the database and at any point in time the farmer can access and check the quantity and quality of the stored grains. The farmer can also apply for a loan over the mobile phone using his stored grains as collateral.
