Daktaripap aims to leverage on mobile phone technology to increase farmers’ access to reliable livestock and crop healthcare. Through DaktariPap Android application farmers are connected to nearest service provider-either crop or livestock depending on problem presented who ask a few basic questions and quickly recommend action. If onsite visit is needed, a visit is immediately scheduled with the nearest service provider to attend to the farmer within a promised turnaround time. DaktariPap platform is also a key resource center to smallholder farmers where weather and best practices information is shared regularly. Farmers are also linked to crop and livestock insurance service providers through the platform. The innovation leverages on power of mobile technology to ensure that farmers and other actors are better prepared to address and prevent current and future crop/livestock health challenges which contribute to huge losses.
-Every day millions of poor farmers in Africa struggle to access better crop and veterinary care for their livestock and crops. We’re building a brand new way for small-scale farmers to connect to animal and crop care service providers.
-Our target is to subscribe 5M farmers and 100,000 service providers next 5 years.
When we receive a farmer request we immediately process it and send it to the closest service provider via our mobile platform. The vet or Agronomist receives farmer request and has the opportunity to review it and accept it.
-Retail services are also available within the application. You can easily purchase agrovet products at the comfort of your couch and get them delivered in a moment.
