Virtual farm

Farming that is fun

We seek to become the first digital farm in Africa where users can buy seed online, sow it online, nurture it online,and harvest online.

Use Case

Kuro is a young student in the university, who is frustrated at the percentage of his pocket money spent on food crops. Currently the doctor has warned him of the quality of food he is eating, the health hazards and complications.Kuro realises that beyond low food crops he also needs greener and fresher food that has not been stored. The solution for kuro is to start farming, but unfortunately he lacks the fund power and know how to plant, in this frustration he is introduced to virtual farm.

Potential

Beyond the immediate impact on food, virtual farm will revolutionize the primitive mode of planting, integrate more young people into agriculture, and start a disruptive method of owning crops without going to farm.In general this will disrupt the norm.

Business Case

We will generate income as a business from the following sources 1.sale of e-seeds 2 premium for nurturing 3 e-fertilizers 4 direct sale to food cafeteria 5 e-Food transfer 6 google adsense

Objectives:

  1. To make food crops accessible to all irrespective of their class difference by making food cheap and easy to access
  2. Integrating more people directly or indirectly into the agriculture value chain, especially young people who are currently under represented
  3. Make quality food more accessible by reducing dependence on crops that are GMO stored, but making fresh organic crops accessible to all.
