AGRIC MANAGEMENT SYSTEM
AMS is an integrated IT package comprising three main components, i.e. the Purchasing System (APS), the Production Input System (PIS) and the secured Payment platform. The process of deploying the system include the following:
GIS registration of cocoa farmers across the country
and the issuance of an RFID farmer card
named the AKUAFO card to every farmer.
The replacement of manual weighing scales with Automatic Electronic Scales (AES) to ensure
expedited and accurate weighing of farm produce and the communication of transactional data of
purchases at the buying centres to a Master Control Server (MCS) in real-time.
The use of the AMS to distribute and monitor agric inputs such as fertilizers,
pesticides, insecticides etc. to farmers.
A payment platform that gives the farmer flexibility to receive payments for their produce
promptly through various payment points including mobile money.
