FARM DEVELOPMENT SYSTEM
Explain your idea in details:
My farm development system aims at solving problems of farmers who according to my research contribute a biggest percentage to Uganda's population and Africa at large. I have seen farmers face various problems since my childhood but which can be solved. I there fore have started on developing a system with an software application that allows farmers to access the appropriate price at which they should sell or buy animals in market. It also has an application that enables farmers to record their daily, weekly and annually earnings and expenditure and will give the daily, weekly and annually profits and losses made. It has as well mobile application software and a website meant to keep strong connections between producers and farmers.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
I believe that my system will increase the levels of demand and supply of farmers' products in the market. I also has got an aim of using it to reduce the high expenditures and bureaucracies farmers go through during the process of selling and buying animals and products. I also look at it improving the sales of farmers through increasing demand of their products due to strong connections kept among them and consumers. I also believe my system will help farmers evaluate their farms as per the daily, weekly and annually earnings and expenditure.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
I plan to have all the networking, computer and phone manufacturing companies subscribe to use the system at a low cost as a source of funds to facilitate research and purchase of facilities needed. Farmers shall also be asked to make a low cost subscription to advertise their products on market and evaluate the performance of their farms using my system. This is meant to also earn income for the networking and computer manufacturing companies who will have subscribed for the system. I will aim at marketing my system especially in the local farmers which I believe will even increase the sales of phones and computers for the subscribed companies and also increase on the number of users for the subscribed networking companies
