McCain leases plots for farming and has over 2500+ plots spread across an area of about over 5500 acres. As a general practice, the company recorded farm data manually and qualified plots as suitable/unsuitable for farming based on these paper records. It is because of this manual process that multiple inconsistent entries were created leading to confusion and incoherence. Due to the lack of monitoring processes, the farmers were not following any activity schedule or best practices. Monitoring practices such as dehaulming & rouging, adoption of right package of practices & the right inputs and visibility of field activities were some of the more serious challenges faced by the company. McCain was on the lookout for a complete farm management solution to resolve its various issues.
