Farmerline’s Mergdata named to Time’s list of 100 Best Inventions of 2019

November 21, 2019

Today, TIME reveals its annual list of the 100 Best Inventions that are making the world better, smarter and even a bit more fun. Featured on this list, is Ghanaian-founded Farmerline’s proprietary software, Mergdata

Mergdata is a web and mobile application that is powering over 200,000 farmers across 13 African countries. The software’s modules for farmer profiling, mapping, certification, traceability, messaging and digital payments are used by over 60 organizations to qualify and provide farmers with the necessary resources they need to increase productivity and profit.

To assemble the 2019 TIME Best Inventions list, TIME solicited nominations across a variety of categories from editors and correspondents around the world, as well as through an online application process. Each contender was then evaluated on key factors, including originality, effectiveness, ambition and influence. The result: 100 groundbreaking inventions that are changing the way we live, work, play and think about what’s possible.

In recognition of this nod, Famerline’s Chief Technical Officer, Emmanuel O. Addai, said,

“This is an endorsement of our avowed principle to use technology to solve the everyday problems of farmers across Africa. Kudos to our dedicated engineers, past and present, who have supported the vision all these years”.

Farmerline is a Ghanaian company that focuses on creating lasting profit for farmers through direct efforts and partnerships. In Ghana, the company uses digital tools and a network of well-trained field agents to provide input financing and intensive training to over 12,000 farmers.
