Kenya Precision Agriculture Market Enhance Smallholder Farming With a Focus on Soil Fertility

(MENAFN - Market Press) Kenya Precision Agriculture Market Dynamics
The Kenya precision agriculture market is primarily driven due to the increasing demand for food in Kenya. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations estimates that almost one-quarter (24.2%) of Kenyans are estimated to still suffer from undernourishment in 2016. Currently, in 2019, 46 per cent of the population live on less than 1 USD a day, 36.5 per cent are food insecure and 35 per cent of children under five are stunted (chronically malnourished) in Kenya. According to the World Food Program, the number of people that are acutely lacking food security in Kenya has risen to 3.4 million from August 2017 to February 2018 up from 2.6 million for February to July 2017. In April 2019, a group of scientists from Africa, the UK and Zambia are pushing for adoption of precision agriculture with a focus on soil fertility monitoring to enhance knowledge driven smallholder farming in Africa.

Kenya Precision Agriculture Market Segmentation Analysis
Based on the offering, the market is segmented as software, hardware and services. Software services in precision agriculture include real-time insights which help monitor real-time reports of labour and inputs that impact crop production, yield monitoring that helps the user measure yield for a specific location and built-in accounting feature that enables the user keep records of crop yields and profitability. Inventory management, labour management, traceability of food production, weather records are some other essential features offered by the software services segment of precision agriculture.
The software services segment of the Kenya Precision agriculture market is expected to witness healthy growth rates in the feature owing to the rising number of agricultural technology start-ups in Kenya coupled with rapid enhancements in agricultural R&D activities. According to the Precision Agriculture Development (PAD) organization, research in Kenya shows that sugar cane farmers working with Mumias Sugar Company who received agricultural advice via SMS experienced yield gains of 11.5 percent. By reporting delays in input deliveries through the phone system, interruptions in fertilizer distribution were reduced by 21.6 percent.
Kenya Precision Agriculture Market Competitive landscape
New product launches, expansion of facilities, mergers and acquisitions and strategic partnerships are vital strategies adopted by most of the companies to contribute to the growth of the company and improve their market growth rate.
For instance, in August 2018, John Deere introduced new precision agriculture solutions and updated software services which include new products such as the 4240 Universal Display, AutoTrac Universal 300 guidance solution and updated 18-2 Gen 4 software, which are designed to help farmers farm even better in 2019 and beyond.
Furthermore, in January 2018, Agribotix, a Colorado-based company specializing in drone-enabled agricultural intelligence, collaborated to integrate its UAS platform with John Deere. Agribotix will deploy its FarmLens ag-drone platform to empower John Deere dealers.
