Now that we’ve reached the end of the December 2017 project month, it’s time to summarise the last month of insane progress.   4 weeks ago we made a plan that included 3 main goals:   1) Empathise with 60 farmers. 2) Meet 3 Supply chain members. 3) Ideate new revenue streams.   Then along the way, plans got switched around, meetings got cancelled, new friends were made, and unexpected kava ceremonies were attended. The result - not only did we smash those goals,...

This post will break this idea down into 3 sections; firstly, the options currently available on Drone Deploy app market, secondly, how we can use the data that these apps provide, and thirdly, alternatives to drone deploy.   App Market...

FarmEd is a program designed around providing farmers with access to real time information that is essential for their livelihood and in doing so, creating a valuable data bank which will allow such information to be provided in the form of a free application. Currently, physical soil tests and multi-rotor drones are the extent of our data collection. This means that the process is personnel intensive and data for the same farm can only logistically be collected at times which are...
