WHO ARE WE?
SOWIT is the story of Hamza and Hamza, two passionate entrepreneurs about agricultural issues in Africa. Conscious of the lack of information available to African farmers, they decided to create a company that brings technology at the service of the African agricultural development.
SOWIT's mission is to accompany African farmers to better understand their crops in order to sustainably optimize their operations and adjust their decision-making in the most strategic moments.
SOWIT fills the information gap of African farmers in two ways:
Provision of informative generic data: weather, market price according to crops, anticipated trends, breaking news...
Provision of decision support tools (DST) according to the location of the fields, the type of crops, the technical itinerary and the objectives of the farmer: advice on fertilization, irrigation, management of the harvest and the predictive of yield...
Agriculture is a lever that can be activated to participate in the sustainable development of African countries. In the context of the major economic growth of the continent, SOWIT values the need of economic and ecological sustainability for the African Green Revolution, allowing the continent to develop sustainably and meet the growing needs of the African and global populations.
African farmers must improve their performance in a time of global warming and extreme volatility of prices of agricultural products and inputs. By providing personalized solutions that meet the needs of each parcel (the right dose, in the right place, at the right time), SOWIT can increase productivity while minimizing the environmental impact of the inputs.
The future of global agriculture is playing out in Africa. The great agricultural potential of Africa makes the continent the last lever of growth in the world agricultural production. In fact, the continent has the largest uncultivated area with 60% of arable lands not yet exploited, and has the lowest yields at an international scale.
