Leveraging Global Best Practises
Initiatives for Farmers
India being an agricultural country, it’s time we adopt climate – smart agriculture (CSA)
Farmers are the single largest occupational cluster in India and South Asia, and most of them have participated in region’s development at best at less-than-average level. Lack of access to latest knowhow and technology, inability to leverage policy and market disconnect have been some of the prominent reasons amongst many. Agriculture, on account of being the largest employer of women and people below poverty line across gender lines, is at the cross-section of many developmental challenges and needs an integrated approach to trigger sustainable change. At SSF, we work towards building a critical mass of marginal farmers, train them in contemporary technologies by setting up CoEs (Centre of Excellence), disrupt the supply chain by integrating them with Mandi / corporate buyers and make them aware of cost & environmentally efficient methods of energy and water usage.
Estimated to benefit from deployment of cutting-edge technologies in the farming sector across pre-harvest & post-harvest supply-chain.
Set up first Tribal Value-added MSME incubation to support tribal’s mostly Agri-related micro & small ventures helping them with marketing/ branding, technology adoption & market
Farming needs new imagination and tools. Our initiative envisages to build Industry aligned Agritech CoE to aggregate Know-how, Provide Micro-training and make farmer networks
