We know cassava

Hi there! Do you know AKILIMO? AKILIMO is two Swahili words pulled together: “akili” which means smart, and “kilimo” which means agriculture. So AKILIMO can help you to grow your cassava crop in a smart way!


Welcome to AKILIMO!

We know cassava

AKILIMO offers a suite of tools and materials for cassava growers, extension workers and organizations that promote improved cassava cultivation practices. These tools have been developed by evaluating agronomic technologies in the fields of over 5,000 cassava growers in Nigeria and Tanzania. We combined these results with geospatial soil and weather information to train models and predict how cassava will respond to these agronomic technologies. That’s why we claim: We know cassava!

We will be posting here regularly about our tools. We'll provide tips and tricks to apply these tools, and additional materials to learn more about AKILIMO. We hope you enjoy, and receive your feedback!
