Introduction to Geofarmer

Course Description

GeoFarmer is an App designed to provide farmers with an opportunity to communicate their experiences—be they positive or negative—and learn from each other by asking questions and by sharing how the management of crops, animals, and farms can be improved. GeoFarmer is a tool that can be used as a knowledge library, for data collection, or for efficient monitoring and evaluation of implemented agricultural technologies and practices by farmers.

This course gives an overview of the intended purpose of the application, potential use cases and previous experience of using GeoFarmer in agricultural development projects.
