Market Information You Can Trust

Up-to-date market information enables farmers to negotiate with traders from a position of greater strength. It also facilitates spatial distribution of products from rural areas to urban areas and between urban markets by sending clear price signals from urban consumers to rural producers regarding quantities and varieties required. It also enables farmers to make planting decisions in line with urban consumer demand, including those related to new crops.

At M-Omulimisa, we collect price information from 33 markets across Uganda including major buyers in the Lango sub-region and make this available to you on your phone for a small fee.

Reliable Weather Information on your Phone

Available weather information sources usually provide data likely from a station that’s far away, rendering the data useless for local decision making. In partnerships with aWhere, we collect weather data from meteorological stations around the world and interpolate it into 9km grid cells- it’s like having a complete meteorological station every 9km! Within each grid cell, we provide 3-5 years of historical, daily-observed and forecasted weather data.

This reliable weather data will not only help you plan your farming activities better but will also help you will spend less on farm inputs and get higher yields because you are able to plan your farming activities better. With only UGX 1,000 per week, you will receive real-time localized weather data specific to your parish (using GPS data) on your phone accurate up to a 9km radius.
