THE PROBLEM

Farmers have inaccurate or lack farm records to make informed decisions on their farms’ productivity. Some record their farm information in several booklets therefore find it difficult to make accurate reports.

THE SOLUTION

Ghalani is a web and mobile farm management solution that enables farmers and agribusinesses to efficiently & accurately manage their farm records so as to increase productivity and reduce costs.

THE OPPORTUNITY

Sector: Agritech

The agriculture industry globally is valued at $3.2 trillion. Ghalani is targeting Africa’s agricultural sector, which is currently worth $300B and is expected to reach $1T by 2030, beginning with Ghana, valued at $7.4B. Their customer base comprises farmers, agro-processors, exporters, NGOs and any agribusiness that interface with farmers – around 1,000 agribusinesses in Ghana alone registered under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture.
