Abstract
The introduction of agriculture technology in any country improves the annual production. Agriculture technology changes farming by reducing the amount of man power needed and increasing yield Connecting farmers from any farming community to buyers at any place can be very challenging for both parties (farmers and buyers). Farmers after every farming season run at a loss due to lack of buyers of their farm products. Also, poor prices offered by few buyers who have been transacting business with these farmers affect them as well. Finally, the product gets spoiled when there is bumper harvest and they cannot sell all at a goal. For instance tomatoes and gardens easily get spoiled if not sold at the right time. As a result, the essence of this project is to develop an online system that will connect the crop farmers to the buyers of their farm products. The application, therefore, considers the various challenges described above to help the farmer get the instant buyer of his or her product in order to maximize profit.
