A new mobile application has been launched in Kenya to boost farm yields and farmers’ access to markets.

Known as uLima, the mobile app is the first of its kind in Africa. It provides farmers with a tool-set, information libraries, databases and access to the latest market information.

 “uLima provides farmers with access to information on crops, seed, soil, livestock, agri-chemicals, weather updates and market prices, all at their fingertips,” said Chief Executive Sunesh Bhoola at the Mombasa Golf Club.
