The project is the implementation of a technology that would assist farmers in rural communities to better manage the amount of crops that is produced. The technology includes three distinct components: the framework for an electronic market that enables farmers to place their fruits and vegetables on a market, and query market information using SMS technology.  The market enables trade between farmers and local communities.  The second stage of implementation includes trading on a regional market, which also account for cooperatives and organisations such as hotels etc., and finally on a global level, in response to demand.
