Company about

Technoplus IT Solutions is a Ugandan social impact company: whose vision is a fair and inclusive global agriculture market system. We were inspired by the advancement in financial inclusion, caused by the proliferation of Information Communication Technologies (ICTs) in low-income farming communities. However, this technology has not been widely adopted for information exchange in agriculture. Yet, availability of data holds an important key to unlocking farmers’ market opportunities, and lowering their risks –the managing of pests, weather and the prices of goods. We, at Technoplus, are proudly using this technology as the northern star leading these farming communities steadily out of poverty.

Company about

Our flagship technology, Agripoll, is enabling farmers, extension workers and key stakeholders to share pests and disease management information. In 2018, with support from Nesta UK and USAID, the solution was evolved and tested in Uganda: the tests were successfully carried out by the Technoplus team and CABI, an international NGO operating in Uganda. Furthermore, this innovation was selected to the finals of the Fall army worm Techprize by USAID’S Feed the future and 2018 Africacom awards in South Africa. Agripoll is currently empowering over 150,000 farmers in its scale up project -with a target of 1 Million farmers by 2020– with best-practice control methods, and awareness of pest and disease outbreaks.
