This because the involved innovation refers to an unconventional “micronizing” technology which helps to overcome the physical troubles that in the past have not allowed the agricultural operators to appreciate and benefit of the multiple different valuable functions that our product might contribute to the agriculture plus the sensible reduction of the water resources required for the growth of the various crops and trees.

Our innovative product “PolyActive” is an organic polymer which contributes to improve the structure and functionality of the different soils, bringing them back to their better functions, because it allows to:

  • A better structure of the different soils, improving their chemical and physical properties.
  • Increase water retention and the storage of usable water (“PolyActive” is hydrophilic and hydroscopic)  into soils, sensibly reducing water consumption.
  • Increase the capture and retention of cationic nutritional minerals and organic compounds, thanks to its 18% anionic charge.

Published

on

BENANE Balignisa an agronomist in love with research is going to start a new course with Agriculture-Sol-Eau in order to generate technologies that best meet the challenges of sustainable development. The control of water and natural factors of production being one of the stakes of agricultural production. The Agronomist is then interested in developing a processor responsible for better managing of the factors of production in a field in an autonomous way.

The edge computer is our best-known product, a processor that sprinkles, treat and kernels the soil in place of humans. We train engineers, technicians and farmers to use this production technology for their larger assets.

We have put this innovation at the service of young people through a project responsible for generating 2100 jobs in the sub-region. We have already trained more than 100 people and start using our production technology.

The digitization technologies of the production are recent. in the sub-region of Africa we have Israeli competitors settled in Ghana. We are the least expensive in terms of cost and our technology is slightly ahead in terms of functions and the possibility of sowing and let our processor do the rest and wait only for the harvest.

 

We make money through the sale of technology

HydroBarley : production and sale of green fodder at affordable prices for small farmers

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

We are 3 founders, brother and sister and one friend, we had been working in an association that promotes social entrepreneurship. Our story started with a need assessment trip that we did to find social issues that we can solve in a village near Rabat, Morocco (where my parents live since 2006).

During our visit we have noticed that some children are in pasture, speaking to them we knew that they are not allowed to go to school because their parents oblige them to spend time looking to feed their livestock. We talked with the parents to understand well the real cause of that. And here our Idea came because the parents told us that because of the high and fluctuant price of fodder they are obliged to send their children to pasture or sell some of their cattle to feed the rest.

Kitovu : creating market access for farmers by using multilingual mobile applications

Published

on

Tell us a few words about the founders and how the idea came

My grandmother was a smallholder farmer and I always wondered why despite her hard work, she never really had a lot to show for it. It was to take several years for me to find out. When I got admission to University of Nigeria Nsukka to study Mechanical Engineering, she teased me, saying I was running away from the farm. I promised her that whatever I learn, I would apply that to build solutions that help her and people like her. Unfortunately, she passed away before I had the chance to keep my promise.

And something I shouldn’t have forgotten, I forgot. Well until I was posted to Oyo State for mandatory National Youth Service. There, I joined the Agro-Allied Scheme and started my first farm and for the first time truly lived in the shoes of farmers. Not only did I achieve sub-optimal yields, market access was also in-existent. I felt there had to be a way to use emerging technology to solve these problems. That was how Kitovu Technology was born. My team comprises of very young and talented sector diverse skilled graduates with a passion to transform Africa into the hub that feeds the world by leveraging technology.
