How it works

Victor's crop is suffering from a disease so he sends a simple, free SMS to his local Wefarm phone number explaining his farming challenge.

His question is instantly sent to relevant farmers within the Wefarm community, using a layer of machine learning technology, all via SMS.

Victor receives useful answers from other farmers back within minutes, without needing to leave his farm or spend any money — and without having any access to internet.
