The Cropmon Project

Together for better farming

Crop Monitoring Service - Kenya

Crop Monitoring Service-Kenya (CROPMON) is a four-year project funded by the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) facility. The CROPMON project has developed an affordable, practical and specific decision supporting information service for smallholder to medium-sized farmers in Kenya. Today, about 200,000 farmers (growing coffee, sugarcane, maize, wheat and grass) benefit on a weekly basis from the CROPMON service. Farmers receive practical, hands-on information about their crop condition, farm management advice, and a local 7-day forecast of temperatures and rainfall via SMS.
