Small team.
Big mission.

Our mission is to raise incomes for millions of small-scale farmers in Africa.

Individually tailored advice can raise yields, quality and profitability for every farmer and aggregator.

Remote first.
Africa focused.

We're a decentralised team working across disciplines and delivering throughout Africa.


Founded by three research institutes - Rothamsted Research, the World Agroforestry Centre (ICRAF) and the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) - iSDA is a mission-driven company carries forward the legacy of the African Soils Information Service (AfSIS).

“I really enjoy the knowledge engineering aspect of my work at iSDA, combining and encoding my 40 years’ experience and scientific knowledge with local knowledge into advisory systems that can deliver field and farmer specific advice. This is crowned by having talented coders and dedicated field staff who can take this to agribusinesses and farmers.”
