How can Africa grow food from electronics and data analytics? Or better, how can Africa make food from technology? It is possible and it is already on the way with pioneering technologies emerging around the continent.
Africa not only holds potential to feed itself and eliminate food insecurity but also to be a major player in the global food market. To address these issues and increase the quality and quantity of agricultural production, Africa will need to engage innovative technology to make farms more intelligent and connected through precision agriculture; using apps, bots, wireless monitoring and control system that provide valuable, actionable, real-time information regarding the condition of the soil and crops thereby affecting yield quality and quantity.
The Nerve calls Zenvus “one of Africa’s prominent smart farming startups” and Fasmicro “one of Africa’s leading electronics design firms”.
We agree: Zenvus and Fasmcro are Africa’s leading institutions.
