Smallholder farmers, who account for 90% of all the agriculture in Uganda experience low productivity and thus low incomes because they lack sufficient access to genuine agro-inputs such as improved seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides.
Akorion is enabling these farmers to boost their productivity and therefore their incomes by providing, up to the last mile, genuine, high-quality agro-inputs to farmers such as improved seed, crop-specific fertilizer, pesticides, and herbicides.
These agro-inputs are bundled with extension and advisory services, provided by our trained village agents, to ensure that farmers correctly utilize these agro-inputs and maximize their efficacy.
Smallholder farmers produce 90% of the food in Uganda yet they earn the least money from agriculture because they lack sufficient market information and access to consistent, well-paying markets.
We train farmers on proper post-harvest handling and provide storage equipment to ensure quality produce and minimize post-harvest losses. We then aggregate and connect farmers to our network of agro-produce buyers and exporters, and facilitate the transactions and logistics between producers and offtakers.
This ensures that farmers get good prices for their produce and offtakers get the right quality and quantity of produce to meet their market targets.
ICT For Agriculture
Akorion is an agtech company that integrates ICT in the delivery of production and marketing services to farmers, and value chain digitization to agribusinesses that work with farmers.
Through our value chain digitization platform, EzyAgric, and our network of community-based agricultural service providers, village agents, we bridge the information and service delivery gap between farmers and agribusinesses.
We envision an agricultural market ecosystem that works for farmers and those who serve them.
To that end, we continually develop cutting edge technology-based solutions that connect various players in the agricultural value chain to what they need to succeed.
