BIBD today reached another milestone with the signing of a MoU with AgromeIQ for the implementation of its Sprout (iQ) Farm.

The collaboration will see thirty ALAF students participate in the four-month programme where they will have access to the locally-developed mobile app which provides guidance on farming processes and fundamentals of starting their own farm. At the same time, Agrome IQ will be giving weekly sessions to the participants on the evolving methods of farming.

This collaboration is part of BIBD’s efforts to further improve the ALAF platform, which is supported by educational monitoring, guidance, camps and visits. At the same time, the programme also encourages its participants to better understand the benefits of farming, and also nutritional healthy eating from the crops they grow.

BIBD will also provide the participants with a farming area to grow their own crops, so that they will be able to reap the rewards of their efforts.

The Sprout (iQ) app is aimed at people living in urban areas wanting to utilize their limited space into sustainable farms. The app also provides daily reminders and notifications on how to best your crops.
