Ricult is a mobile app for farmers in Thailand leveraging machine learning and satellite imagery to help farmers increase productivity, access affordable loans,  and lift them out of poverty. Plagued by climate unpredictability, low yields, lack of technology and know-how, as well as financial exclusion, farmers benefit from the app’s recommendations to make optimal decisions regarding seeds, fertilizers or planting, while connecting with consumer markets. Ricult aims to increase the overall food supply and food security in the region.
