Farming in the Developing World
There is huge potential for improving farming efficiencies in the developing world - small percentage changes can make significant effects on the quality of life for millions.
Whereas great work is being done developing better seeds which result in better resistance to drought or flooding we think there is a massive opportunity
in just helping the communication of all the better techniques. We also think that we should enable the population to communicate these techniques themselves. The Internet will help here but we hope FarmAppies will become
the mechanism which will be used to enable that communication.
Of the 5.9B billion people in the developing world, there are 5B phones - 1B are smartphones. The number of PCs are many times lower and there is a real need for content generation on the mobile. iOS and Android make good platforms for content generation but that content can be consumed on many types of devices from small Java based phones to smartphones. FarmAppies content can be consumed on all these devices. Whereas our competitors have ignored the small Java phones we have continued to support these devices as well as smartphones and we are well positioned to take a prominent place for apps in the developing world.
