The novel AI product, Kuzi, is built as “a free early warning tool, delivered by SMS, helping farmers across Africa to predict and control locust attacks.”

According to a statement from the organisation, Kuzi “uses satellite data, soil sensor data, ground meteorological observation, and machine learning to predict the breeding, occurrence, and migration routes of desert locusts.

In ensuring a potential damage is forestalled, farmers and pastoralists alike, through Kuzi, can receive free SMS alerts 2-3 months in advance before locusts are highly likely to attack farms and livestock forage in their areas.

Still operating majorly within East Africa with about 200 million reach, Kuzi’s alerts come in regional languages of Kiswahili, Somali and Amharic.
