WADUU

Problem:

Established or new pests and diseases are attacking unprepared regions and because of poor access to extension services and lack of information, such outbreaks may go unnoticed. Therefore, increases in agricultural productivity continue to be constrained hence early warning of possible pests and diseases is critical.

Solution:

Waduu mobile application will help farmers to report any suspicions of crop pests or diseases outbreak by taking images of the affected crops and uploading the images on the platform. This way, extension workers will be able to respond quickly by advising farmers on what to do in the comments section either through text or voice recording. Hence bridging the information gap between the farmers and extension workers.
