Each device is solar-powered and is able to scan the farm and notify the farmer of any crop pests or disease through their phone.
Once the device detect a crop pest or disease in the farm, it advises you as the farmer on the farm chemicals and fertilizers you should apply and where to buy them.
All the data from the devices is then sent to our data analytics dashboard for analysis to generate valuable data insights to be used in making data-guided policies and decisions.
We have pioneered the first-ever technology that is able to operate in your farm throughout the farming season and constantly advise you on any crop pests and diseases in your farm and give you valuable and insightful data about your crops. We assure you of:
Impacting 250,000 farmers by 2027
We take it as our moral imperative responsibility to end Hunger and ensure food security for 250,000 farmers from rural communities in the Global South by 2027. Our goal is to increase their agricultural productivity by at least 45% and ensure that all the people, especially the most vulnerable farming communities, have access to safe, nutritious, and sufficient food throughout the year.
Scaling to 15 Kenyan counties by 2024
Food insecurity remains a significant challenge in Kenya, despite efforts to address the issue due to factors such as food losses from crop pests and diseases, climate change and prolonged droughts, land degradation among others. Our technology is built to solve this underpinning our laser focus to scale the technology into 15 counties/regions in Kenya by 2024.
Scaling to 5 African countries by 2026
Despite many global NGOs actively working to alleviate hunger and improve food security in Africa, Africa has remained the continent with the highest hunger levels and with the most vulnerable to future shocks and crises. On the other hand, a research by WFP (USA,2017) shows that technology can provide enormous solution. This has been a buttress to our goal of scaling our proven impact to 5 African countries by 2026.

My name is Boniface, we farm here in Kabete in Kenya. I am 19 years old, I have grown up farming, my parents are farmers, farming is in my DNA. Since we started using the Farmer Lifeline device as a family, it has enabled us detect crop pests and diseases, and advises us on the chemicals that we can apply, forecasts the weather for us. We now have better harvest and better produce.
My names are Peter Njau Mburu, I am a farmer here in Kiambu Kenya. I am very thankful to Farmer Lifeline, because their technology has really helped me in knowing the pests and diseases on my farm, and the fertilizer I should apply. My farming business has been very good recently, at least I now earn a decent income. I see myself far much better than my friends here (smiling).
My name is Julius Kimani. I am a young person, I finished school two years ago. I started using the device very recently after I heard about it at the community shop ("base"). At first I didn't care since I am not a farmer but I came and explained to my parents bow my friends lives are getting transformed and we decided to try. Looking at the crops yourself (interview was done at the farm), you can see how good they look. I encourage you watching me to use the device. Thank you Farmer Lifeline. I have bee encouraging my friends who are often idle and encouraging them to use it because I know their lives will change.
My name is Marion Mburu, I farm here in Ruku, Kiambu. I can say the machine (Farmer Lifeline device) has assisted me a lot. It tests for me the crop pests and diseases and advises me what to do. It really assists me. It advises me on my phone on what I should apply and where I can buy it which is very good. I have seen a big benefit since I met you (Farmer Lifeline interviewer). From the profits in my farm, I have educated my children, the areas where I would harvest 100 pieces (kales), now I get almost 500 pieces (kales). Am happy.
