Farmbook’s most popular feature is an interactive Google map that allows users search for agricultural products within a particular radius. A convenient and simple interface makes it easy to provide detailed information about products on offer as well as manage interactions with customers and partners, track new ads and quickly find any organizations within the specified parameters.
Bjoerne Drechsler, the founder of Farmbook.info, says: “Apart from the fact that the new platform will provide better transparency for different agricultural markets, it will in addition give small and medium producers a perfect tool for marketing their goods at a global level. Moreover Farmbook.info will enable producers to sell their products to the highest bidder, without intermediaries.”
Although the agricultural sector is known for being very conservative by nature and resistant to change, the number of companies/people wishing to sell their products online is constantly growing. Since the beta launch in December, 2010 in Russia, the site receives an average of 10,000 visits per month a figure that is growing continually.
“The need for accurate, up-to-date and well referenced information has been repeatedly expressed both by producers and consumers alike, but most of the existing online resources focus on a very narrow criteria and are rarely comparable across regions. Farmbook.info provides centralized access to market information and will help to build a competitive, and sustainable agricultural sector” predicts Bjoerne Drechsler.
