The Government of Canada has put a solid proposal: we want to have Zenvus and its team from Nigeria to Canada. But there is a major problem: the United States Government gave me money to build Zenvus. You see why I always write “the beautiful America”. It is a country where an immigrant with no connection can get funding to do something amazing, purely based on the quality of his vision. We channel our market deals via Aba in Abia state (Nigeria) to help my home state revenue, and U.S. is just fine with it.
This image (above) is from a farmer in Asia who uses Zenvus to track and monitor something we did not design for. Of course, a product is useful for whatever customers (legally) use it for.
Zenvus is an intelligent solution for farms which uses proprietary electronic sensors to collect soil data like moisture, nutrients, pH, etc. It then sends the data to a cloud server via GSM, satellite or Wifi. Algorithms in the server analyze the data and advice farmers on farming processes. As the crops grow, the system deploys special cameras to build crop vegetative health index for detection of drought stress, pest and diseases. Our system has the capability to tell a farmer what, how, and when to farm. It has in-built GPS, compass and XL making it possible to map farm boundaries which could be useful during loan and insurance applications.
In 2020, we will open a new playbook: any farmer, not just cooperatives or governments, can buy Zenvus. That includes Zenvus Smartfarm (farm sensors), Zenvus Yield (our camera) and Zenvus Loci (disposable & reusable trackers).
