What Does Infotrade do?

Infotrade provides market information, ranging from prices for food commodities, organic foods, inputs, to offers from commodity sellers and buyers and how to contact them. Infotrade has an online platform where all this information is stored called the AGMIS

How do I access prices for individual markets?

You can access the current average price for each commodity on this website, but to view prices for individual markets you need to subscribe to AGMIS. Subscription to AGMIS is completely free.

Why should I subscribe?

Subscription to AGMIS gives you the freedom to access all features of our platform. While the website gives you average commodity prices for the whole country, AGMIS allows you to generate a graph making a comparison of a commodity(ies) across all markets. With AGMIS you can also generate time series graphs for information collected from over 3 years ago and export this to any application.

Can I post my offers to sell produce on the website? 

Yes, you can post offers if you would like to sell or buy any commodities. This information is posted on our website at no cost (after verification) and is also included in the report summaries produced every week. Members who have subscribed to receive offers on that particular commodity also get to know about your offer.

How much does it cost to receive prices on SMS? 

SMS is broken down into 2 options:
1. You can send a text to 8555 to receive prices [read more] or 
2. You can subscribe and receive the same information from us on a weekly basis. Either option will cost you UGX 220.

Do I have to be a member of an organisation to get access to LAMIS? 

No, organisations are not the only ones that can access LAMIS. If you are a member of any association, society, cooperative or other organised group that does agricultural activities you can access LAMIS

Do you provide trainings for organisations interested in acquiring the LAMIS? What are the costs? 

We provide a 3-day training for LAMIS, we do not charge you for the platform. The only costs incurred are for trainers' facilitation and a minimal subscription fee every year. Get more information about LAMIS training here. We prepare quarterly training on LAMIS but you can request for a training just for your organisation.

As an organisation interested in LAMIS, what hardware equipment must I have in place?

LAMIS is an online platform so once you set up your account all you need is a working computer/laptop/mobile and access to internet.
