ALUVA: Source Trace Solutions, a software company, on Friday introduced an innovative mobile phone application for farmers’ organisations at the Biofach-2014. According to company officials, the application is being widely used by farmers in Asia and Africa. “The application works well for farmers’ organisations with a large number of members. It facilities most of the major activities, starting from farmer data enrolment and consolidation, product distribution, procurement and payment collection details.
The application can also be used for project monitoring purposes, including real-time farmer data validation, crop monitoring with photos and inventory management. Project evaluation methods, such as updating project status, effective planning and report generation can all be done easily with the help of the ‘app’,” the company officials said. ‘Geo fencing’ is a unique feature available in the application, which uses location-based services to notify the producer when a device enters or leaves a particular geographic boundary.
