Tech Support to Agriculture Sector & Farmers
Driven by our passion to bring ease of living and economic prosperity for people, we strive to develop appropriate technology-based solutions in the field of Agriculture, Health and Education. Apart from having in-house capacity to develop and implement solutions, we collaborate with like-minded individuals and institutions to create bigger impact from our synergistic efforts.
We are encouraging farmers of the Valley to cultivate exotic vegetables and herbs such as broccoli, lettuce, celery and parsley to make farming more profitable.
(a) Formation and promotion of FPOs
We facilitate the creation of and promote Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) to increase farmers’ incomes by consolidating their strengths and skills. We provide handholding support to FPOs right from the inception, through formalization, planning, budgeting and linkage with resources. Presently, we are promoting MARAAZ Farmer Producer Company Limited in Dooniwari area of Budgam district. MARAAZ focuses on production and marketing of general and exotic vegetables, dairy products and Plums
(b) Agritech App
SESTI has developed a sophisticated but user friendly App for Farmers, vendors and other traders in the supply chain of Agriculture production and marketing. The App connects the producer directly with the vendors thereby removing the intermediaries, which increases earning outcome for the producers besides bringing efficiency and reducing the transaction time significantly. Besides providing marketing ease, the APP has features through which the users have access to knowledge in local language through written content, audios and videos regarding farming and allied things.
