FarmEd is dedicated to achieving goals 1 and 2 of the UN Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Goal 1: End poverty in all its forms everywhere
  • Goal 2: End hunger, achieve food security and improved nutrition and promote sustainable agriculture

 

FarmEd is currently the most advanced of Project Everest’s ventures and aims to provide commercial consulting services to farmers. The current focus of FarmEd is to create an AI enabled farm management software system that farmers can access through their mobile phones. As of now, all work in country has been to determine the product market fit of FarmEd by understanding how farmers could interact with an app, understanding whether farmers have access to the technology required to use the app and whether they would be willing to pay for the service.

 

The end state product based on our findings will consist of a platform where farmers can input agricultural data specific to their farm (soil pH, moisture, etc.) and receive tailored recommendations on how to increase their crop yield and quality. The farmers would then have the ability to ask specific questions about what actions they should take and receive tailored answers.
