Impact Farmer Profitability With Adaptation To Climate Change Through CropIn’s AgTech Platform
CropIn Technology is the chosen Agtech partner in a public-private project with Government of India and World Bank for brining technology to build climate resilience to the doorsteps of Indian farmers, spanning an area of 1650+ hectares.
The Sustainable Livelihoods and Adaptation to Climate Change (SLACC) Project for India in association with the Government of India’s National Rural Livelihoods Project (NRLP) and supported by World Bank, aims to empower farmers to adopt climate resilient practices and adapt to the climatic changes and unpredictability.
Adverse climate change is a threat to sustainable farming. It leads to soil degradation, drop in crop yield and lower quality produce, and increases incidence of attacks by pests and insects. As per an ICAR report, a reduction of upto 9% in agriculture yields is expected in the medium term (2010-2039). This calls for swift adoption of climate resilient agriculture practices.
There is a need for bringing technology for climate resilience to the doorsteps of India’s smallholder farmers, which is where CropIn has stepped in and provided the following solutions:
I walk through three farm plots of my fellow farmers every day to examine the crop growth and occurrences of pest attacks or crop failure. I send photo alerts via my smart phone to CropIn, which sends an advisory within a few minutes to remedy the problem. Women farmers appreciate my efforts and have started trusting my advice because they see a positive difference on their farms
