Big Terra Alpha brings missing elements to agriculture management in Africa. African farmers have in general extremely low yields compared to developed world. The world of African farming is disconnected and ineffective. The company combines data from satellites, weather stations and numerical weather models to provide farmers and related services with a one stop shop for data supporting their farm management decisions – from suggestions when to plant, estimating how their crops grow and advising how they can best support their crops, to suggesting optimal time for harvests.
UNIQUE SELLING POINTS
- Can deliver extensive information about climate and farming conditions for places with
a lack of local data
- State-of-the-art data science applied to fine-resolution satellite and weather data combined with crop growth modeling
- Bespoke service for all sectors involved with farming in developing regions – NGO, government, finance, etc.
