Who we are
Wikifarmer.com was founded in 2016 by Petros Sagkos, a 34 years old Engineer Agriculturist (Master of Science) and farmer.
The idea was born as Petros had decided to cultivate oregano so as to extract essential oil. He needed advice on which variety to prefer, seeding rate, cultivating methods, days to harvest etc. After an extensive web research, he did not find any free credible resources across the web. Some relevant websites were asking for monthly subscriptions, and even after paying, they released some very basic data instead of a detailed step by step guide.
At that point, Wikifarmer.com mission was created: To gather, edit, consolidate and finally release free, contemporary and useful farming practices so as to help every farmer in the world.
