Green Farm Solutions (GFS)

December 29, 2017 inby Green Farm Solutions

Crop protection products, commonly called pesticides, play a pivotal role in controlling pests, diseases and weeds that infect, consume or damage crops. As a result, pesticides boost yields, increase incomes, reduce strenuous hand weeding (particularly for women) and improve standard of life for the smallholder farmers. However, ineffective and irresponsible pesticide use is one of the key challenges of the smallholders, which account for more than 90% of agriculture in Ethiopia.

GFS has developed an innovative inclusive business model that uberizes professional spray service provision. Pesticides are to be applied by Spray Service Providers (SSPs) who are trained and certified by GFS in cooperation with CropLife. GFS becomes aggregator of these SSPs together with their own motorbikes or pick-up trucks and connects SSPs with the smallholders through its platform. Besides, GFS supports SSPs with improved spray equipment. Putting together the right knowledge and technology, GFS provides accessible, affordable, effective and, last but not least, responsible pesticide application for the smallholders.
