Decades of economic and political isolation have left Myanmar's rural families poorly served by both public and private sectors. Most of the technological advances in agriculture from the last century have bypassed Myanmar's 30+ million small farmers-the backbone of the country's agrarian economy. Farmers face rising input and labor costs, a changing climate and decreasing farm fertility. They spend hours using outdated technology only to eke out low yields.
Our platform approach is designed to bring together a multitude of service providers to meet the evolving needs of farmers. The following overlapping, indispensable products and services on the platform are delivering specific value and impact for farm households as they pursue a path out of povert: Seeds & Planting, Precision Irrigation, Soil Health Testing, Nutrient Management, Seasonal Crop Loans, and Crop Protection.
