Africa's full agricultural potential remains untapped. Small to midsize farmers often lack access to effective, efficient and affordable irrigation equipment and farming insights to improve productivity and increase yields. This reduces the productivity and incomes of farmers and leaves them vulnerable to rainfall risks and the effects of climate change.
Illuminum Greenhouse partners with farmers to provide smart greenhouses, irrigation equipment and soil analysis equipment, powered by AI and machine learning. Farmers can control their farm remotely from their mobile phone and get real-time information on the irrigation needs of their crops. This helps them increase yields by up to 30% and reduce water usage by up to 60%, maximising income and profitability.
