Digital Soil Mapping for Optimal Agricultural Yield and Sustainable Soil Biodiversity in Southwest Nigeria Using Artificial Intelligence (FUNAAB-SMARTSOIL)

Project Summary

This project is aiming at developing FUNAAB SMARTSOIL, a modern soil information system for Southwest Nigeria using digital soil mapping and artificial intelligence techniques and provides hyper-local soil information in a way that is easily accessible and affordable to farmers and other resource-deficient target groups (youth and women) and other interested end-users.

FUNAAB SMARTSOIL will guide farmers for the sustainable use and management of soils resources as well as agronomic advisory service to improve agricultural yield and productivity, food security, promote soil biodiversity conservation and management, and adaptation to climate change among smallholder farmers.

The project is a partnership between Department of Computer Science and Department of Soil Science and Land Management, Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta, Nigeria in collaboration with Safefood Africa Agroenterprise, Ogun State, Nigeria.
