Innovative Mobile Service system (IMSS) Supporting Farmers and Farming Activities

Iddrisu Ibrahim, Els van de Kar, Zakaria Ismail Mahamud


Climate change is altering known weather and rainfall patterns and subtly altering seasons in Ghana and the world over. The weather changes exert impact on farming and farming activities leading farmers and farming activities into state of disarray.  Knowing, for instance, when to plant and to harvest is the basis for success in agricultural pursuit, but this is gradually eluding the Ghanaian farmer due to impact of climatic change on weather. In Ghana like many other African counties knowledge on weather and climatic change is based on understanding or experience passed onto generations through ancestral heritance. But the speed and scale of this change is making the traditional knowledge less accurate and unreliable, thus impacting negatively on agricultural productivities.

As part of measures to pre-informing Ghanaian farmers about adverse effects of climatic change on agriculture, we postulate this Innovative mobile service system (IMSS) that would pre-inform or caution farmers on the nature of imminent climatic condition within the predicted period.


The stimulus for this article is based on the extraction of data from microwave links on precipitation and evaporation; an idea that was proven by Hidde Leijuse in his PhD thesis; “Hydrometreorological application of Microwave links to measuring evaporation and precipitation”.


The data gathered for the write-up of this article was from the above mention document, text books on innovative systems design and search on the Internet on impact of climatic change and contribution of the agriculture sector to the Ghanaian economy.
