Smart Krishi mobile app

  1. 1. Smart कृ षि व्यवसाययक कृ षिमा नौलो आयाम!!! “Empowerment of professional Nepali agriculture with smartphone technology…..” मोबाइल एप
  2. 2. Why Agriculture?  Potential of agricultural growth to reduce poverty is four times greater than any other sector(UNDP survey, world bank).  Poverty is a multidimensional phenomenon and lack of access to information and communication can exacerbate its causes.  Effective agricultural extension system improves productivity by helping them to use of resources.  Feeding global population(approx. 9 billion in 2050) will require 70% increase in overall food production, smallholder agriculture – plays a much more effective role.
  3. 3. Existing problems  Nearly 5 million abled youths are out of country for foreign employment. 2 millions in last five years.  Relying on a patchy network (local middlemen, a handful of progressive farmers, and local shop owners) to get solution of critical problems which have impact on their decision making.  Social Pressure, because agriculture sector is still regarded as a profession of uneducated people.  Access to the financial opportunity/subsidy for a start-ups.  Inefficient weather forecasting mechanism.  Lack of marketing/post harvesting/processing knowledge.
  4. 4. Virtuous Circle of mobile and agriculture  Accessibility: Mobile wireless networks are expanding as technical and financial innovations widen coverage to more areas. (80 lakh people uses internet(NTA). Ncell has coverage among 90% of population and NTC has coverage across the country which includes data as well.)  Affordability: Prepaid connectivity and inexpensive devices, often available second hand, make mobile phones far cheaper than alternatives. (JiaYu G2F: 4.3inch touch screen, 3G, Wi Fi, GPS, 8mp camera. Launched May 2014 Cost US$81.)
  5. 5.  Appliances: Mobile phones are constantly increasing in sophistication and ease of use. Innovations arrive through traditional trickle-down effects from expensive models. At the relentless pace of Moore’s law, summer 2019 cost of same specs of what was considered superphone in 2010 would be $10 (including marketing & profit)  Applications: Applications and services using mobile phones range from simple text messaging services to increasingly advanced software applications that provide both livelihood improvements and real-time public services.
  6. 6. Opportunity  Many NGOs/INGOs has provided their extension staffs a smartphone(AMIS, SU-AAHARA).  Peoples from other sectors are investing their time and money in agriculture as a part time income source.  Foreign returnee have started to involve in agriculture sector.  There is lot more for people in urban areas as well who can be our users (updated market price information, vegetable shopping, library section, parikaar book, beauty and health tips, agricultural data).
