"Grower's Nation " By Grower's Nation
The Grower’s Nation application is designed to reduce the barriers to growing by taking location, climate and growing conditions data into consideration and aims to give more people the information they need when selecting what to grow.
The crop dataset we are creating is possibly the first of its kind that is available open source, and will enable cross referencing of crop, climate, weather and soil data. When complete, it will include the growing conditions required for different varieties of fruit, vegetables and grains.
During the challenge weekend, we had some great collaborations with teams from around the world including: Exeter, San Francisco, Chile, the Dominican Republic, Nairobi and New York. We hope to continue collaborating with related projects into the future. There is a lot of potential for follow on work from this project and the Growers Nation team members are enthusiastic to continue working on what they regard as a very worthwhile project.
