Utilising the latest machine learning technology, Wefarm’s service works both online and over SMS. Knowledge shared on Wefarm can help farmers to produce higher quality products, increase yields, gain insight into market pricing, tackle the effects of climate change, diversify agricultural interests, and much more.

The role will also participate in Wefarm’s farmer facing field initiatives to ensure farmers are excited to engage with the service.
