Explain your idea in details:

The Mobile App (MkulimaAfrica App) shall have Pest's detection and treatment mechanism.Our mobile App will be embedded with an Al (Artificial intelligence) mechanism of detecting pests and suggesting the treatment mechanism. We noted there are very few Agri Advisers , our App will act as a personal adviser when farmers and herders crops and animals get affected with pests. He/She will have to take a picture of affected part of a plant or animal and submit to the app, automatically the app will translate the picture and advise the type of disease and advise the nearest agro shop for medication.Mkulima Africa App, will use Expert system as part of Artificial intelligence to assist human decision making, gathering vast number of information and providing valuable recommendation to users of our App. Having access to to predictive information on the behavior of pests is very powerful tool for technicians and farmers with a view to intergrated pest management,since it allows for better decision making, knowing the areas and dates of great risk and impact, the designing control measures in a more efficient and sustainable manner. With this, regard, MkulimaAfrica App will collect Big data on pests and other crop parameters, which will be analyzed and fed into Artificial Intelligence model that is able to predict the pest's behavior up to two weeks in advance. The main objectives are to provide early identification of harmful organisms to plants for farmers, design and implement Mobile App with system mainly for detection, prevention, diagnosis, and control of pests and disease that affect Tomatoes, maize and coffee, to propose an operational automatic identification tool that helps non expert to identify pests and to suggest appropriate treatment and advise nearest Agro shop to a farmer for more medication.

Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development

Africa suffers losses of millions of money to control crop pests and disease every year. Therefore, Mkulim Africa aims in developing a connected Mobile App that will help thousands of farmers to apply the right treatment at the right time in order to combat pests and disease more cost -effectively and with less environmental impact and increase food production, hence no poverty, no hunger.

Plans for implementation and sustainability

MkulimaAfrica App is at conceptual idea stage and expects to build a highly friendly and reliable system within the application which will help farmers to access it easily when it's well developed. MkulimaAfrica technicians and researchers will collect data, validate the data and finish the Application within twenty months. We expect to access finance through self funding, support from friends, family, applications for grants to validate the idea, we expect to have collaboration from technology companies, Agriculture sectors, financial institutions, farmers and farmers organisations,and other collaborators as will be determined later. Our business will be in service model, which will allow farmers registration to our App and access six months trial free services and later will have to pay for one month or more up-to one year subscription services depending to rates which will be set, our rates for subscription will be accessible and friendly as we will conduct research from our farmers before setting our prices rates.
