Our Procedure

Our time tested procedure of delivering a realistic market income revenue to the benefit of our farmers and investors is second to none.

1. Onboarding Farmers

We partner with Farmers Associations, Cooperatives and Community heads to identify serious and experienced farmers within communities who cultivate same crop. We educate them on premium offtakers and linkage to these offtakers who will buy off their produce at harvest at a competitive price.

2. Training & Provision of Seedlings

Once serious farmers have been aggregated, we offer them necessary trainings on smart farming, provide seedlings, fertilizers, funds and machineries for cultivating.

3. Financing

Through Institutions and HNIs, funds are pulled in to finance farming circles and projects. The capital is then put into production, trading and logistics where our onboarded smallholder farmers are engaged.

4. Insurance

Insurance is the protection against an unforeseen natural event. Each of our farm locations and commodity on transit carries an assurance cover to protect our investor’s investment.

5. Agrorite Bookies

We provide farm inventory management system to the farmer to ensure adequate documentation of expenses associated with the farming process, and also provide bi-weekly report to investors and off-takers.

6. Harvest & Warehousing

During harvest period the ripe crops are harvested from the field by the farmers and collected to a central Agrorite Aggregation Center (AGC) for easy offtake.
