New App brings Commodity Prices at Farmers’ Fingertips

Aug 02 2021

“Kolfa” is a brand-new app which provides commodity price information to Tunisian farmers in near real-time. The bilingual Arabic-French app, now available for free on Google Play Store, has been developed by the ICARDA ICT2Scale team in Tunisia, with the support of the CGIAR’s Research Program on Policies, Institutions, and Markets (CRP PIM), and in partnership with the National Observatory for Agriculture ONAGRI and the IT developer Almanara.

The easy to navigate, picture-heavy interface showcases the prices of up to a hundred different commodities and farm-related products like seeds, fertilizer, and animal feed, enabling farmers to keep up to date with market fluctuations, thereby informing their purchasing decisions.
