WeFly Agri’s offers bird’s eye views

Farmers in Côte d'Ivoire increasingly using drones

When WeFly Agri launched in Côte d'Ivoire in 2017, the start-up sought to address the lack of visibility that plantation landlords had over their agricultural investments by bridging the information gap with precision agriculture.

This meant that landlords were no longer held back by the traditional method of running operations which required them to place their faith in the accuracy of their plantation supervisor reports. Now, they are able to map and monitor their own land from afar.

With the use of drones, landlords are able to see the state of their crops, whether their plants are water-stressed and are able to determine whether they are over-spending on their irrigation systems – contributing to a large-scale profitability.
