Dimitra Incorporated is a global Agtech company with a mission to help smallholder farmers across the world. Dimitra works with governments, government agencies, NGOs, and for-profit organizations. The Dimitra platform is built on blockchain technology and incorporates mobile technology, machine learning, IoT devices, satellite and drone imagery, genomics, and advanced farming research. Through our data driven approach, Dimitra helps farmers increase yields, reduces expenses, and mitigates risk. Dimitra believes that every smallholder farmer, regardless of economic standing, should benefit from simple, beautiful, and useful technology.
By 2050 we will need to feed 9.7 billion people. In 2021, over 1 billion people go to bed hungry everyday, in the past five years this problem is growing, not reducing. One third of the world's population are smallholder farmers, operating subsistence level farms, typically smaller than 5 hectares and struggling to produce enough food to feed their own family. In G20 nations, farmers have access to technology that helps them operate their farm as a commercial enterprise, greatly exceeding their own family's needs and allowing them to supply food to hundreds of people. There is certainly a significant divide which needs to be closed.
Our current farming practices are less than sustainable, agriculture accounts for 70% of the world's fresh water usage, farms generate a significant amount of pollution. We have lost 50% of our topsoil in the past 150 years, this is coupled with loss of nutrients and salinity problems with much of the remaining soil. Educating farmers about leading practices is a challenge for governments, creating a means to educate and share best practices is a labor intensive process..
Our current methods further threaten food security, over 1/3 of the food produced in the world is lost or wasted in the process… Poor storage techniques, losses in transportation and border crossings, waste in the markets and grocery supply chain are all challenges that corporations, governments and farmers are trying to solve. Food security issues exacerbate growing challenges with malnutrition, the cost of healthy diets are unaffordable to over 3 billion people in the world.
Smallholder farmers in many areas of the world struggle to make ends meet. These farmers can play a huge role in solving the world food shortage, improving food safety and addressing food security issues. Putting simple, beautiful, effective technology in their hands is our core goal. We want to help them improve their productivity with the power of information.
At Dimitra we are on a mission to make our technology available to smallholder farmers globally. We believe that every smallholder farmer, regardless of economic standing, should benefit from simple, beautiful and useful technology... because when farmers thrive, entire economies thrive.
According to the World Bank, agricultural development is one of the most powerful tools to end extreme poverty, boost shared prosperity and feed a growing world. Growth in the agriculture sector is 2-4 times more effective in raising incomes among the world's poorest compared to other business sectors.
Smallholder farmers are rapidly adopting mobile phones and have a new platform to run their business, learn new farming techniques, record their performance, communicate with government ministries and agricultural experts. Most agricultural software is an expense that they cannot afford. We are on a mission to change agriculture software affordability.
Dimitra is actively working with governments and non governmental organizations to make our "Connected Farmer" platform available to smallholder farmers in developing nations, free of charge. This platform enables farmers to use advanced technology which provides them with actionable data, breaking the cycle of poverty, enriching their economy through increased crop yields and healthier livestock.
The Dimitra Connected Farmer Platform is available in Android, iOS, and Web versions and is available in a growing list of languages. The platform is targeted at supporting developing nations to allow smallholder farmers to record their farming activities, create and receive detailed dashboard reports, and receive recommendations that will allow them to make informed decisions that directly impact their standard of living.
Dimitra decided to solve many challenges with Blockchain in concert with Mobile and Machine learning. Blockchain provides farmer anonymity, enterprise level data security, document auditability, secure track and trace, immutability, and maintains privacy between government, corporations and farmers stakeholders.
Dimitra has ambitious and impactful goals. Our goal is to grow our platform to 100 million smallholder farmer users within the next 4-years. We already have agreements with 8 countries. To achieve our ambitious goal we have several key business strategies:

Smallholder farmers in many areas of the world struggle daily to make ends meet. They are focused on supporting their families and their communities. Despite the pressure of feeding their families, typically of 7 members, smallholder farmers unknowingly carry much of the burden of solving many of the world’s most pressing issues. If smallholder farmers can increase their yields, reduce their costs and mitigate risks, they could have a considerable influence and impact over the following global issues:
According to the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (UN-FAO), this amounts to over 3 billion people on 475 million small farms. The majority of these farmers live below the poverty line and generally employ only family. Remarkably, in developing nations, these farmers can produce over 70% of the food that the country consumes. The number of medium-size farms globally is rising, and increased smallholder productivity will be the biggest growth driver. Closing the technology gap between developed and developing nations’ agricultural performance makes for considerable gains.
We are striving to “level the playing field” in agricultural technology. Working with our growing global ecosystem we will provide farmers in developing nations with access to the best Agtech platform and innovations, enabling them to:
• Use data to make better decisions
• Create valuable records about their practices
• Access a repository of farming best practices
• Access critical weather, satellite and sensor data
Most importantly we are striving to impact productivity in developing nations. Agricultural productivity growth in low-income countries is rising at an average annual rate of just 1 percent. The UN Sustainable Development Goals call for doubling the productivity of the lowest-income farmers by 2030. Our ecosystem can help achieve incredible growth in productivity, a farmer can double their output in a few short years if they employ best practices.
Attaining the UN goals of doubling productivity significantly impacts the standard of living of smallholder farms as a productivity double allows 5 times as much produce to go to market. This leads to the ability of bringing other people out of food shortage and brings up the standard of living within the community, it will lead to the ability to increase education, potable water, sanitation, road networks and shelter. The social good of these improvements compounds quickly within the community.
According to the World Bank, agricultural development is one of the most powerful tools to end extreme poverty, boost shared prosperity and feed a growing world. Growth in the agriculture sector is 2-4 times more effective in raising incomes among the world’s poorest compared to other business sectors.
Over the past 5 years, smallholder farmers have been rapidly adopting mobile phones. In developing nations, agricultural software is still an expense that farmers cannot afford. Providing Dimitra to smallholder farmers as a platform to run their business, learn new farming techniques, record their performance, and communicate with government ministries and agricultural experts is necessary for accelerating their success.
We are now in over 65 countries and are continuing to grow globally.
