The Rice-based Rainfed Agricultural System tracks the varying efficacy of rice crops.
Catholic Relief Services is using CommCare to support an agriculture project in India through the Gates Foundation’s initiative, "Improved Rice-based Rainfed Agricultural Systems." Extension agents and supervisors track the progress of farms growing these various varieties of rice. Each rice variety's effectiveness is tracked and evaluated, leading to better livelihood outcomes in this agriculturally dependent region.
CARE’s female self-help agricultural groups improve productivity and increase yields.
Since 2013, Dimagi has been working on the CARE Pathways project, which is focused on helping female self-help agricultural groups improve their productivity and increase incomes. Dimagi has set up a custom, tablet-based scheduling and activity tracking system for CARE's extension workers, providing a "Knowledge Base" for on-site refresher training, as well as a complex data collection system to track group and individual performance on yield, income, and empowerment indicators. All content is locally contextualized a summarized in easily parsed custom reporting.
This FLW support system offers farmer tracking and multimedia-based counseling materials.
Technoserve supports agriculture extension workers and supervisors to track crop status, financials, and payroll information. The CommCare application records farmer information for easy access by extension workers and contains multimedia counseling materials such as the safe use of pesticides and seedling growing techniques.
