AGTRACK

Sebata’s AGTRACK solution is a web application that functions as a project tracking and performance monitoring tool, and serves as a farmer database.

Developed in 2002, the custom-built system is continuously evolving to assist the Kwa-Zulu Natal Department of Agriculture and Rural Development, its affiliates such as the Agribusiness Development Agency (ADA), and its farming beneficiaries by providing needs-based management tools and technology to support sustainable agricultural growth.

AGTRACK’s intention is to be the agricultural model adopted by the agricultural sector across Africa.

WHY THE NEED FOR THE AGTRACK SYSTEM?

As a project tracking system, AGTRACK assists clients to recognise all of the tasks that they are required to successfully complete on time. It can break down projects into features such as estimation activities, scheduling, cost control and budget management, resource allocation, quality management, risk management and activity tracking.

There are various reports built into the system. It can determine which geographical areas and communities that are benefitting from the government’s agricultural investment. Project management helps farmers manage and track their expenditure, and milestones and targets are no longer missed. It also records the kinds of projects implemented – in terms of vegetable production, animal piggeries etc. – allowing the government to track what the region’s agricultural needs are.

PROMOTING FOOD SECURITY

AGTRACK helps farmers to manage their cash flow, inventory and distribution of yield. It also has the ability to track the distribution of agricultural yield to any school, community or region. Field agents can access the application remotely from any smart device – be it on location or in the office. AGTRACK significantly helps to improve work and agricultural yield across the country, and continually maintains traceability for food safety up and down the supply chain.

PROMOTING THE EQUAL DISTRIBUTION OF AGRICULTURAL YIELD

AGTRAC makes tracking and monitoring of farming projects accurate and easy, helping to direct funds to where it is most needed.
