May 2019 — CropIn Technology, a global provider of AI/ML-based agtech solutions, gains recognition as a member of the Sustainable Rice Platform (SRP). The SRP was co-convened by the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP) and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) as a multi-stakeholder platform to promote resource efficiency and sustainable trade flows, production and consumption operations, and supply chains in the global rice sector. This new partnership with SRP reflects on CropIn’s endeavour to digitise farms and deliver value to rice-producing farmers of developing nations, and stands as a testament to CropIn’s collective efforts towards sustainable agriculture, to ensure safe and nutrient-rich produce for people around the world.
“This partnership with SRP will solidify the impact we created in the Agtech industry and furthermore extend our efforts to bring about a formidable change in the socio-economic development of the nation,” said Kunal Prasad, COO & Co-founder of CropIn.
Through modern-day technology, CropIn intends to support SRP’s mission to promote resource efficiency and sustainability in production operations and supply chains in the global rice sector. This alliance with SRP will empower one million smallholder farmers to adopt sustainable farming practices in rice production, and boost farmers’ income while also protecting the environment from degradation due to harmful chemicals.
