To solve the problem of a dearth of data, information and intelligence that has plagued Africa's agriculture-especially in the smallholder segment, AgroMall has developed and deployed digitized production support, data collection and data analytics capabilities that have become powerful tools for production improvement, market analysis and targeting, risk and quality management, situational awareness and planning in the hands of farmers, businesses and governments.

As Africa seeks to evolve its agriculture especially with efforts to support smallholders for optimized productivity, profitability and positive net impact on the rural economy, it has become increasingly important for players in this sector to understand  the need for information and its efficient delivery, the potential transformational impact on the rural economy, and the complexity that will be involved in arriving at desired results. AgroMall is delivering on the key role technology will play to provide and manage capability, capacity, information and situational awareness of an effective, efficient, productive and profitable agricultural industry and rural economy in Africa.
