Japan-funded ‘RiceAdvice’ project benefits over 16,000 African farmers

“Thanks to a 1-year project supported by the Government of Japan, 200 trained service providers have helped more than 16,000 rice farmers in Mali and Nigeria benefit from ‘RiceAdvice’, a customized crop management decision support tool, leading to increased productivity, efficiency and profits.

Developed by the Africa Rice Center (AfricaRice), the  RiceAdvice app, which can be freely downloaded through  Google Play on Android smartphone or tablet device, generates tailor-made recommendations that help farmers in irrigated and relatively favorable rainfed lowland areas in Africa apply mineral fertilizer more efficiently in order to optimize production and profits and reduce waste.”
