Information asymmetry creates inefficiencies in the agri food system
In Asia, almost 80% of our food production is dependent on an estimated 450 million smallholder farmers (SHFs), majority of whom earn less than USD 2 a day from cultivation.
Farmers face challenges related to: limited access to capital pre-season, quality inputs, agronomic information in-season, and markets post harvest.
Investing in the AI-Culture for Agriculture
We invested in Indian-headquartered Cropin for its ability to improve efficiency, productivity, predictability, and sustainability of crop value-chains for agri-businesses and smallholder farmers around the world. Cropin empowers the farmers associated with the agri businesses to utilise real-time data for better decision-making and improved farm productivity.
