Crop Monitoring Service-Kenya (CROPMON) is a four-year project funded by the Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW) facility. The CROPMON project has developed an affordable decision supporting information service for smallholder to medium-sized farmers in Kenya. CROPMON provides information services to the farmers on the actual crop condition, farm management advisory and a local 7-day forecast of temperatures and rainfall. Today, about 200,000 farmers (growing coffee, sugarcane, maize, wheat and grass) in Kenya benefit on a weekly basis from the CROPMON service.
The Project Closure Workshop of CropMon takes place on Tuesday 20th of August 2019 in Nairobi. On this day, we celebrate the successes of CROPMON project, share the lessons learned and present the business case for the next phase of the project. The day will be a combination of project demonstration, farmer testimonials, business development workshop and last but not least an open forum for discussion and networking.
