  • AgriCoach scaling to 20.000 farmers

    This September the AgriCoach is getting 20.000 new users in Burundi as part of the GAP4A project. The Super-Activators and Master-Activators of AUXFIN are trained on the app and are distributing the app and training the G50 groups. The groups are also instructed on corona prevention measures: hand washing and social distancing.

    With the AgriCoach app these groups receive an 9-day weather forecast specific for their location, information on crops and varieties, a calendar and movies on Good Agricultural Practices. Evaluation has shown a yield increase with use of AgriCoach, so we wish these farmers good luck for coming season!
