Geo4Africa summit 2017: Decision support system for small-scale farmers – the case of MUIIS, Uganda

Geo4Africa summit 2017: Decision support system for small-scale farmers – the case of MUIIS, Uganda

Aperçu de l'événement

MUIIS is an innovative project being implemented by CTA with six other partners in Uganda for a duration of three years.

MUIIS delivers timely bundled service of weather information, agronomic tips and index-based drought insurance to maize, soya bean and sesame farmers across the country to make informed decisions. It utilises both geodata (satellite) and ground data (local weather stations, farmer profiles, crop calendars, etc.) as the main source of content for the service. It leverages the power of a network of about 200 MUIIS Service Agents (MSAs), a team of agronomists, and a mobile communication platform to reach over 350,000 farmers within the period.
