In Thailand, agriculture is the origin of many traditions and beliefs. However, in Thailand, farming is closely related to poverty and a low standard of living. Our sponsor, Urmatt Ltd, has been working for over three decades with impoverished farmers in rural Thailand to help them improve their living conditions. Our goal was to help Urmatt implement e-agriculture by developing an app to reduce inefficiency, better support farmers, and help with maintaining their organic certifications. By interviewing Urmatt’s employees and farmers, the team was able to identify the needs of Urmatt and the farmers. Our team designed effective features that will help Urmatt increase their efficiency and improve the support that farmers receive.
