At a glance 

Climate change means that crops that may have grown well in a location in the past won’t grow well there in the future, for instance if drought is more likely. While many large-scale, commercial farmers can rely on weather and ground sensors to understand how they should adapt to these changes, small-scale farmers, particularly in emerging countries, are not as fortunate. The one thing even small farmers do have are mobile devices. The Agrolly app provides accurate weather forecasts, crop risk insights, and a worldwide knowledge sharing forum to equip farmers with the critical information they need to manage their crops.
