Smart’O

About Solution

Food insecurity is becoming a major problem in the Sahel, as it contributes to an already high rate of poverty and is having a negative impact on both education and public health. Due to this situation, over 80% of young people are forced to move off the land or to immigrate. Food insecurity is becoming a major problem in the Sahel, as it contributes to an already high rate of poverty and is having a negative impact on both education and public health. Due to this situation, over 80% of young people are forced to move off the land or to immigrate. SMART’O is a revolutionary solution which will optimize the efficiency of our agricultural production system. Thanks to its state-of-the-art technology, SMART’O, a smart, autonomous and automatic irrigation device, will help us get rid of seasonal agriculture and boost crop yield by promoting sustainable farming and dry season cropping.

Challenge

The food situation is particularly worrying in parts of the region, and the levels of acute malnutrition in the Sahel are critical and of grave concern. From June to August 2018, the risk of malnutrition was increased by the hunger gap, with the number of food insecure families soaring by 84% in Sahel countries. Due to the low agricultural and biomass output, the hunger gap arrives early and lasts for extended period of time in those countries, greatly undermining livelihoods of the local populations.

Impact

Our groundbreaking solution automatically and autonomously irrigates fields or plants when they need water, depending on the level of soil moisture. It’s both simple and efficient, and it can be used to regulate irrigation over several hectares of land. Our pioneering agricultural solution injects and distributes predetermined doses of fertiliser to boost plant growth, increasing crop yield by more than 75%. SMART’O is powered by solar energy and doesn't need to be manned, which make it clean, autonomous, automatic and smart.
