High technology agribusiness for efficient agricultural produce harvest
SAAT is using blockchain innovation to bring the world's most advanced farming technology to West Africa, and subsequently Africa as a whole through provision of Hi-tech agribusiness for efficient agricultural produce for foreign and local markets, as well as job creation opportunities.
The United Nations’ FOOD AND AGRICULTURE ORGANISATION published a report in year 2009 suggesting that by year 2050 agricultural productions have to rise by 70% to meet the projected demand. “If agriculture is to continue to feed the world, it needs to become more like manufacturing -Geoffrey Carr”
The word of Geoffrey Carr sums it all. Smart farming is precision agriculture and it’s all about the application of modern Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) into agriculture. ICT solutions such as sensors, precision equipment, Internet of things (IoT), actuators, drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, robotics, big data, geo-positioning systems etc will be used to bring about the much needed yield necessary to meet up the food needs of the region as well as maximize profit from harvests.
