SourceTrace Systems ESE™ platform modules covers the entire agriculture value chain, from pre farm gate to post farm gate. These modules helps the organisation to digitize the agriculture value chain from the moment the crop is sown in the field till it reaches the consumer.
SourceTrace Systems specializes in agriculture software mobile applications for developing economies with a primary focus on sustainable agriculture and empowerment of smallholder farmers. SourceTrace farmer centric mobile applications help manage the agriculture value chain all the way to the last mile to enable smallholder farmers participate in global markets. SourceTrace mobile applications are scalable from small co-operatives, farmer producer companies to large agribusiness corporations and government agencies working in the sustainable development sector.
SourceTrace mobile applications provide complete visibility from field to market and tracks the value chain at the source – even in remote, low bandwidth environments. eService Everywhere (ESE™) helps to capture all interactions at the touchpoints of the smallholder farmers at the field level for enhanced traceability and improved accountability of the value chain.
SourceTrace Systems ESE™ platform sets the industry standard for mobile applications in remote and low-bandwidth environments by successfully deploying in three continents. Real time information allows management to increase operational efficiencies and reduce costs and contributes to “smart” agriculture and incentivizes smallholder farmer organizations to embrace technology and increase their production.
Captures socio-economic profile, crop and farm details using in-built GPS system with provision to upload photo, bio-metric data and Government IDs.
Through this application, the total land area, cultivable and cropped land area, and other farm information are captured seasonally using GPS coordinates.
Exact plotting of farm area is carried out using this in-built GPS system and geo- location application. Cultivable area mapping, distance calculation, and route mapping can also be carried out.
This mode captures the date of sowing of a crop in order to estimate its yield. It also helps with data for crop and harvest management.
This application manages and tracks the distribution of inputs along with warehouse and financial management.
Enables the scheduling of various agronomic and crop production milestones. The activity calendar provides help monitor the activities, generate alerts and reminders with regard to farm production.
Audio and text-based services are available in manual and automated modes on (device?) Remote-sensing based advisory is also linked to this device. This module disseminates all such acquired information to the field staff and farmers.
Provides periodic inspection for pest and diseases, crop stage activities, and also offers package of practices. It monitors irrigation, application of fertilizers and other input application.
Captures post harvest operations like actual yield versus estimated yield. The value of produce, details of buyer, selling price and warehouse linkages are provided. Enables generation of real-time crop harvest analytical reports.
This module helps in determining the cost of production, calculates cost- benefit ratio, and generates farmer income statement.
Enables organizations to be efficient in the purchase of any crop. This application captures multiple farm and crop procurement data along with real- time procurement price. This module generates digital print receipts.
This application monitors the transfer of products from the collection points to the warehouse or processing plants. Various storage and transportation facilities as well as movement of stock between different warehouses, are mapped and monitored.
This module monitors operations and activities of field staff in real time and validates the accountability of staff involved in any particular project.
This solution generates real-time, advanced level analytical and customizable reports, charts and graphs. It also has various built-in reports that enables high-leveldecision making.
This application maps the various warehouses in the vicinity and links this data into the organisation’s procurement system. Operations such as stock entry, transfer and dispatch are automated and also linked with the logistic and finance management module.
Individual farmer ledger accounts are created, which records cash in-flow and out-flow, loan management, sale of produce and generates farmer’s balance sheet.
SourceTrace eServices EverywhereTM (ESETM) Monitoring & Evaluation system plays an important role to link information from cocoa farmers, farms (including GPS maps) and the communities. It also facilitates Cargill's internal learning and allows us to know what cocoa farmer needs are and respond to those accordingly.

SourceTrace innovative approach allowed us to keep track of productivity levels down to Palm Tree level using mobile scale and GPS mapping. Now we have precision agriculture like data of our Palm Oil plots which allow us to do more efficient fertilization and operations management.

Our partner INDONG based in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo integrated the work force and production capacities of thousands of isolated smallholder farmers in rural communities into an integrated agri-value chain network using SourceTrace ESE™ software.
We now have a centrally managed agri-value chain, with near real-time visibility on transactions and traceability to allow fact based decision process.

SourceTrace applications brought new possibilities for e-traceability by developing its robust software platform for agriculture and allied industries. USAID-AIN project implemented by WorldFish is proud to introduce e-traceability on a pilot scale into Bangladesh using SourceTrace applications. We are looking forward to scale up e-traceability in cooperation with others for wider implementation in the shrimp sector
