Genevieve commented on Talisman, a shining light for small-holder farmers

Hi Dr Holland,

I am a genomics research scientist currently based at the Agricultural Research Council (ARC) in South Africa. The ARC works on all aspects of plant and animal crops, predominantly at a national level. This type of technology would be extremely useful to farmers in southern Africa, a number of which already have smart phones. I recently attended the third Global Conference for Agricultural Research and Development that was held in Johannesburg. During this conference, there were a few hints towards such mobile based apps, all of which were well supported by the audience (scientists, farmers and stakeholders). As yet, I have not been able to see a fully functional app. Is it available for download or is there a beta version I could share with colleagues?

Many thanks,
Dr Genevieve Thompson
