(Business in Cameroon) - Euroméditerranée, a public development institution, has selected the Cameroonian start-up Promagric as one of the five finalists of the 2019 edition of the Med'Innovant Africa competition. This challenge aims to identify and promote African project leaders, who propose innovative projects for sustainable cities in the Mediterranean and Africa.
The jury, which will deliver the results of the finals on 5 and 6 December 2019, was seduced by the project presented by Promagric. This project is Clinicplant, an application that allows farmers to quickly diagnose crop diseases and instantly obtain the appropriate biological treatments by uploading a simple photograph of the affected plant.
This application, selected from among 28 projects submitted by Cameroonians (out of a total of 129 projects from 22 African countries) for the same competition, uses state-of-the-art artificial intelligence technology that allows for excellent image recognition and provision of good prevention advice to farmers.
Thanks to this innovation, Promagric will be able, on the evening of December 6, 2019, to pocket the €5000 that accompanies the Jury Prize. But, for that to happen, the project must be better than those submitted by the other four finalists. These are Ecovon (Ghana), Dashmake (Togo), Sen or'dur (Senegal), and City Locker (Algeria).
