e-Krishok Business Planning Solution is an application developed to help farmers develop business plans for their farming practices. The application has two major components, (i) business planning canvass and (ii) profitability calculator. The business planning canvass helps a farmer to analyze his or her required inputs, revenue streams, potential partners, customers etc which are required to develop a business plan. Whereas, using the second component users can calculate their profitability, both estimated and actual and also compare among multiple crops, so that they can find out which crop is more profitable. They can use the accounts for their future farm planning. The idea behind this solution is to help farmers keep accounts and make proper business plans so that they can practice demand driven farming and increase their profits. This application has been developed based field experiences through implementation of Farmbook in Bangladesh. It has been customized to match specifics of smaller farmers and keeping in mind the skills f farmers in developing countries. The application can be used in any Android based platform. The business planning can also be done with the help of an agent, so that the agent can assist farmers in his or her area.
