Specifically, the project will conduct aerial mapping of a minimum 15,000 hectares of smallholder farmland (each with approximately one to three hectares of land) and distribute image data to a minimum 1000 of independent smallholder farmers.
This will include:
– aerial mapping of a minimum 15,000 hectares of smallholder farmland,
– image analysis and interpretation of the image captured by the aerial mapping
– Provide report and recommendation for scale up the use of drone for smallholder monitoring, cost per farmer, effective data distribution and payment collection system from smallholders.
