The LandInfo Mobile App Technology is a community-driven initiative that enables users to instantaneously access climatic and soil information and interpret them in the context of local conditions and values, including crop preferences for specific soils. The app is founded on the lack of easily accessible, timely and accurate climatic and soil information to inform decision-making. Users are able to target investments on land for specific purposes such as crop choices for specific soils based on prevailing climate. With knowledge on annual average rainfall and temperature distributions, aridity index, soil types, and water retention capacity among other features provided by the LandInfo, farmers are able to plan their farming enterprises adequately to avoid losses caused by climate variability and hence improve productivity and resilience. The LandInfo app was first piloted in Samburu County and will be scaled-up for adoption in other new areas in Kenya through intensified sensitisation and capacity building programmes for lead farmers and extension agents on the use of LandInfo in selected counties.

Target Counties: Bungoma, Kakamega, Meru, Siaya
