M and E Solution

Do you have large tracts of farming land that needs to be monitored? Or, you work with farmers in different places that your field staff finds hard to monitor? Do you conduct periodic evaluations of your farms and plantations but don’t have a tool to do them with?

SourceTrace's M&E solution helps monitor crops, track agricultural practices and helps organisations make sure that farmer advisories are implemented. Our tools also help your different monitoring and evaluations teams to come onto a single platform. The central office can have complete visibility into all farms and farmers as well as into different growth stages of the crop comfortably from a remote location.

Our monitoring and evaluation solutions have been implemented in larhe plantations in Africa, fashion houses in Bangladesh and more. You can read about a few of them in our case studies section too. If you wish to know, how we can help you trace your produce, request a demo here
