Almost everything that goes on in this world needs an improvement, due to that, many applications and websites have been developed, to help the growth of farming sectors and the motivational level of the farmers, as a result of some information posted on the various pages of existing applications. This project provides a mobile application to help locate cocoa farmers and their farm detail on a map. A centralized database of farmers, is constructed to enable the ministry of agriculture and other government agencies, to monitor the activities of registered farms, how to manage the distribution of incentives to registered farms and to aid in preventing the smuggling of cocoa by some farmers in the country. This system is therefore, to enhance the growth of the farming industry.
