As an international student from India where agriculture employs more than 50% of the total workforce. We have come across many incidents in which farmers are suffering because of high debt burdens, corruption in subsidies, and crop failure. We thought to build something with our skills which gives them profit. We also decided to consider consumer satisfaction. Not getting enough money for their crop is the most serious problem they are facing right now. Eliminating third parties and connecting farmers with customers would be helpful for the agriculture sector.
What it does
It is an application where a farmer can post his crop it can be anything like vegetables, fruits or pulses and also the price of the product. the customer can search for nearby farms using google maps and buy from this platform. We are responsible for the delivery of the product.
How we built it
Challenges we ran into
We were not able to navigate multiple pages in the beginning and also had difficulty in using google maps API. After doing some research we were able to figure out the error.
Accomplishments that we're proud of
We are able to build and run our application and also learned new skills like integrating APIs
What I learned
I'm very new to backend development but I learned how to use firebase and MySQL
What's next for Go farm
In the future, we want to add a crop recommendation system for farmers in our platform to suggest them crop based on weather conditions and also try to expand this to many farmers and consumers.
