As we celebrate the international youth day of the united nations today, we would like to introduce Agripredict to you! Agripredict was spotted from the AgriHack which was our first ever youth in agribusiness event.
AgriPredict is a machine learning program that can be harnessed in agriculture as a risk and disaster management tool. Farmers experience droughts and diseases that affect their livestock and crops, and end up losing huge assets and investments. Fortunately, this group of youths have developed a technology to change all of that. They have developed an app called AgriPredict.
