CropIT is the foremost agribusiness solution platform in Africa
There are over 1 billion people directly involved in small-scale agriculture. Together, these farmers grow 70% of the world’s food. We want to connect and support these farmers so they can grow more effectively, and ultimately rewrite global supply chains for their benefit. Our vision is to enable 10 million small-scale farmers in Africa to fulfil their economic potential by 2030.
Founded in 2019, CropIT was initially launched as a digital and monitoring company for smallholder financiers. After the initial launch, CropIT became an independent, mission-driven company, building a trusted digital platform and deploying technologies to empower communities of farmers to be more successful. To date, 2 million farmers have connected with us for better success and we have been involved in some of the largest agricultural initiatives in Nigeria.

“ CropIT operates across multiple segments, and benefits from many diverse perspectives and experiences across our members, teams, and partners. ”
We fill market gaps in parts of the world where it is thought to be impossible; we provide equal opportunity in our activities and we prize diversity within our own organization.
We deliver. We take ownership when things do not go as planned and we lead with high ethics and environmental, social and governance standards. This includes the impact of our work on local communities and the environment.
With the current focus on climate change and emissions from agriculture, we are developing several projects that can help farmers reduce their impact on the environment.
When agribusiness professionalize, they are more profitable, more sustainable, and better linked to markets.
We are honest and transparent because it builds mutual trust and respect with all stakeholders.
We have a strong, positive and tangible effect on peoples’ lives.
“Nigerian agriculture has potential, but no one can eat potential. We must articulate a clear vision to make Nigeria an agriculturally industrialised economy, to create wealth, jobs and markets for farmers, ensure food security and revive the rural extension system to reduce losses. Agriculture and our small farmers in particular, must become the engine for growth.
To do so we must make a fundamental paradigm shift. Agriculture should be seen as a business and not a development program. It must be structured, developed and financed as a business for us to fully unlock its potential. Gains will not come easy, but as we do the right things we will succeed.
This innovative effort will enable the African continent to get ahead of the curve, and more efficiently and sustainably unlock the full potential of its smallholder farmers and agribusiness sector.”
