About Novus Agro
Novus Agro is a multisided platform that organizes smallholder farmers into accessible groups for all that want to transact with them. Using technology and a trained network of community-based facilitators, we profile and verify smallholder farmers on our platform and facilitate interactions between them and other stakeholders. Novus Agro was established in 2012 to fill the white space of privately led real time agricultural market data collation as well as facilitate linkages between agricultural value chain participants. Today, Novus Agro runs the largest private network for the collection of agricultural market information in Nigeria, as well as the widest network of community-based market facilitators.
