eHarvest

Digitalizing Post-Harvest Management

What’s eHarvest?

eHarvest is a Ghana-based forum-oriented agriculture Information and Communication
Technology (ICT) platform that connects;

1. Agro Dealers (Farm Tech Manufacturers, Sellers and Distributed of post-harvest techs)

2. Consumers (Buyers/individuals, Processing Institutions)

3. Farmer and Retailers (SHF’s, agribusiness holders etc.)

4. Financial institutions (Banks, Micro Finances, crowdfunding)

5. Institutional Users (NGO’s, Government Agencies etc.).

The Purpose

The mission of eHarvest is to empower these users along the same value chain by providing access to quality information, agric tech products etc to its users.

 

eHarvest creates an atmosphere for people of like-mind to communicate things of interest. Such as, a small-holder farmer can know who is interested in his produce even before he begins to clear the land for cultivation.

 

eHarvest connects farmers with low literacy and reduces language barriers by deploying mobile-based, voice-activated and short message service (in local language) farming advice, weather forecasts, market information, and financial tips.

Technologies

• Distribution and utilization of loss-reducing technologies
for improving handling, storage and processing of crops
(many of which exist today).
• In some instances, we see opportunities for supporting
targeted breakthrough innovative technologies in
specific value chains (e.g., cold storage).

Market Demand and Linkages

• Linking large anchor buyers demand for fresh and
processed crops to smallholder supply and local
alternative markets to excess crops
• Linkages can include traditional market relationships
or newer procurement and sourcing arrangements.

SHF Training and Aggregation

 • Aggregation of SHFs into farmer groups is essential
to meet the quantity, quality and consistency of
requirements of buyers
Capacity-building and other adoption measures are
important to ensure SHFs uptake technology and
other interventions.

Financing

Financing will generally be required to facilitate
manufacturing, distribution and acquisition and
adoption of technologies e.g. loans and leasing models.
Investment capital is also required to fund the scale-up
of promising technologies and innovative distribution
models.

It also serves as an e-commerce platform for Agro Dealers to market their products to potential buyers thereby making the product useable before the end of their shelf-life.

 

Farmers can request for financial assistance for purchasing of preservative chemicals and

sometimes for transporting of farm produce from farm to the market are granted over a more secured payment gateway by financial institutions.

The Criteria

Our Criteria Search module helps farmers to find answers to post-harvest question by defining queries to meet their demands and situations.

The search result for a farmer in Bolgatanga will be different from that of a farmer in Kumasi since their real-time situations differ.

 

Another good thing about eHarvest is the integration of performance tracker to help newbies appreciate the effort of active users and reliable service providers.

 

The geo-position feature helps it farmers know the nearest potential buyer.
