Embedded technology is the way to go in such fields since the growth of IoT is in an upward surge. In Africa there are countries that have started such ventures and their outcomes are to be envied and emulated. This proposal is aimed at enhancing the use of embedded Linux systems in both animal and crop farming. There are few and shallow but adequate technological uses on farming in terms of inputs and selling of the farm produce for example Digifarm championed by one of the mobile telephone service providers in Kenya, there are also other apps that are used to link farmers to consumers and farm inputs. With this proposal data can be collected, accumulated and stored on cloud infrastructure for research and development as well as management, pest control and marketing of the farm produce to other consumers who are interested in the produce.
