Democratise Precision Farming
Urban agriculture is the future of food producing because by 2050 more than 60% of the world’s population will live in cities and it will increase the potential of urban food insecurity. Transforming urban food systems is an integral part of a sustainable development path for cities. It also provides a mechanism for improving urban food security and creating sustainable food patterns.
Tania is a software that is designed and built for everyone interested in agriculture. We're focusing on an accessible, flexible, secure and easy to use technology that works in many setup you can afford—so that you can focus on performing your tasks on the field. It also offers connectivity to the Internet of Things devices such as sensors and actuators to help you gain more control and easily monitor your farm.
We believe in democratising precision farming and the freedoms that come with open source technology. Our inclusive and growing community of people contributing and collaborating on to this project, driven by the passion to help you reach your goals.
Through Tania, our mission is to make the smart and precision farming technique affordable for farmers and growers all over the world.
Tania started in 2016 when we, Retno Ika and Asep Bagja are frustrated with existing farm management software on the market. They were either too big, too complicated or too expensive and still doesn’t suit our needs. We need a lean software that is capable to connect to various sensors and actuators installed on our small backyard garden and manage them while we are on-the-go.
The name of Tania itself comes from Indonesian words: petani Indonesia which means Indonesian farmer. In Hungary, Tania means farm. The name of farm management system sounded like a sophisticated product, too. So we agreed to called this software as farmer journal, where we can also keep notes here and there of our farming activities too.
We built the first version of Tania using PHP. But this language cannot handle connectivity to IoT devices. Today, Tania is standing strong on Go lang and VueJS, and licensed under Apache 2.0.
We want to provide the opportunity for anyone to do precision farming and utilise environmentally sustainable practices to meet the necessities of urban settings.
