The app gives producers the opportunity to generate market information for themselves, but also to apply benchmarking. Currently, the app provides the opportunity to insert the following information and to benchmark at national level as well as local level:
• Plant intensities
• Plant progress
• Harvest condition
• Rain figures
• Input costs
• SAFEX Prizes
It gives the producer the opportunity to make good marketing decisions, but also to ensure that the correct price is paid for input. In addition, additional reports are also used from time to time. These include questionnaires about where commando worms occurred, or producers get funding and how much of the producers still have debt transfer and how to compare seed costs for the coming season.
The most important part of the application is that it can only work effectively if producers complete the information and use it continuously. Producers are welcome to contact the marketing team if there is a need to demonstrate the application to study groups or at farmers association meetings.
