ECHO has provided resources to farmers and development workers for 40 years. ECHOcommunity.org contains thousands of documents and videos that are relevant for those working to end world hunger; the new mobile app enables these resources to be stored directly on a mobile device so that they can be viewed and shared with others while offline.
The ECHOcommunity Mobile App also allows farmers to track and evaluate crops. Seeds (whether procured from ECHO seed banks around the world or from other sources) can be tracked from planting to harvest through detailed digital records. Farmers can track weather events, inputs, pests, diseases, and many other factors. The app supports adding notes and pictures. Data, notes and pictures are synchronized to internet-based storage when internet is available, and retained on the device at all times. The app is able to function on very low bandwidths.
The app is available in English, Spanish, French, Swahili, Thai, Central Khmer, Indonesian, Vietnamese, Burmese, Chinese and Haitian Kreyol through the Apple [http://edn.link/apple] and Android [http://edn.link/android] app stores The navigation language can be changed in Settings. When changed, any resource already translated to the selected language will be presented in that language. Translation projects for navigation and resources are undertaken as needs are made known and funds become available.
