Software Demonstration Exercise conducted at Weija Irrigation Scheme

A USAID consultant by name Edward Yuechi has over the weekend (1/4/2017) demonstrated a software device for capturing field data on a field at the Weija Irrigation Scheme. The software when fed with the right input captures the coordinates of an actual farm plot. The name of the software he calls is OASIS which means Operation and Agriculture Supply Information System. Mr. Yuechi in the year 2016 trained some staff of GIDA on Proposal Writing and is now working with the Plant Protection and Regulation Services Department under the Ministry of Food and Agriculture. It was recommended that the software should be further developed to capture the area of each plot of a farm.
