Weather Data

Sourcing the best data for the most reliable protection

Sprout Monitors Farms Through Remote Sensing Technologies


Water is a critical component for any crop to produce maximum, high-quality yields. Most farmers rely on rainfall as their primary source of water. Too littl rainfall (drought) or too much (flooding) can lead to reduced yields.


In Western Africa, temperature is expected to rise 3 degrees Celcius by 2100. This increase in heat has the potential to reduce yields by 15%! Meanwhile, high-altitude crops such as Arabica coffee are suseptible to frost. Temperature is a major factor in crop production.

Soil Moisture

Water moisture inside the crop's soil has an impact on the productivity of yields and can be a replacement for rainfall measurement.


Sprout offers climate protection products for coffee farmers to manage climate change risk.

Assess Climate Risk

Using Satellite Data and Machine Learning, Sprout sees the changes in climate and the risk associated with it.

Crop Insurance

Sprout designs crop insurance meant for smallholder farmers and works with insurance companeis to underwrite the product and bring to market.

Sprout Alerts

Mobile messages direct to farmers advising on unexpected weather patterns and the agronomy tips to navigate the changes.

Climate Data is a critical component of managing and overcoming the climate crisis. Having high-quality climate data allows our team to develop tools to help farmers impacted by climate change to navigate the changing future. Sprout uses AI to create climate data specific for the crops and locations we build tools for. AI is also used to predict crop production volumes.

Traditional crop insurance waits until the end of the season and waits for farmers to submit a claim against their loss of production (yields). This process is expensive and takes too long! The majority of crop losses are due to weather. Weather index insurance simply watches weather (rainfall, wind, temperature, etc) and when a threshhold is reached, an automatic payments is made to the farmer. No need to go to the farm and wait for a finalized claim process!

Sprout's solution is mobile and web technology. We communicate directly with farmers using USSD, SMS and Android apps. Stakeholders such as buyers, insurance companies and program funders can use the web portal to monitor all the insurance and program data. Sprout handles all data and communication with one solution.
