KAOP (Kenya Agricultural Advisory Platform) is an integrated online platform that uses geo-data from satellites to generate real-time and location-specific agro- advisories to farmers and other stakeholders.
The system is able to predict precipitation and temperature and plot dynamic charts given GPS coordinates of any location in the country for the next Fourteen and provide weather observations for the past 7 days and 10 days.
This data is used to generate the agronomic advisories for the wards and uploaded to KAOP for dissemination to farmers through the online portal and SMS.
KAOP has given farmers access to real-time location-specific information and location-specific recommendations for example on crop varieties, soil preparation, sowing rate and time, irrigation, fertilization, pest and diseases control, harvest time, and storage options based on weather forecasts.
