Smallholder Farmer Information and Advisory Portal

The SHF web portal is intended to store all of the information on intervention methods, farmers involved, and training and education methods in one central site and also keep track of on-going interventions as the number of smallholder farmers involved increases. University researchers and field investigators can keep track of farmers, via their individual profiles, on their progress and analyze data coming in for use in the field. SHFs will be able to ask questions, report progress and post grain available for sale using their cellphones through text messaging (for farmers not equipped with smartphones). Incoming data from grain quality sensors will be uploaded and can be monitored by university researchers as well.
