Mfarm limited, an award winning software solutions and agribusiness company has announced a partnership with Samsung that allows them to release their mobile application on both Android and Samsung’s Bada based phones.

The mobile tool lets farmers receive accurate, real-time crop price information daily, 6 days a week, sourced from 5 major markets in Kenya: Nairobi, Mombasa, Kisumu, Eldoret and Kitale. The M-Farm web application gives monthly analysis of the crop prices in different markets, showing the price trends. The farmer is then able to make informed decisions on what to plant, when to plant, how to price his produce and where to sell it.

The official launch shall be on the  5th of June 2012 at Ole Sereni Hotel, Nairobi, at the Pivot East conference.
