Agriculture is a mainstay of the economy and plays an important role in its growth and development. From the India context, over two-thirds of the population is directly or indirectly dependent upon agriculture and its allied activities

Location: Sripurandan (South) is a village in the Udayarpalayam taluk of Ariyalur district, Tamil Nadu, India.

Product quality

Problem Statement Overview

On the other hand, the food industry finds it difficult to procure agriculture produce directly from the farmers due to the high transaction costs. This makes the supply chains inefficient and creates concerns of food safety, lack of transparency and traceability. If the increasing number of agricultural suicides is any indication, these farmers are struggling to survive. While indebtedness is often cited as the immediate reason for their distress, deeper issues are involved in this phenomenon, such as low scale of operations, lack of information, poor communication linkages with the wider market, and so on.

Current Challenges
The following are the key challenges faced during the field visits and while collaborating with FPO’s and Farmers:
Key Takeaways

Field Study Understanding

Key Objectives
This case study from SFS is an attempt to understand and explore the journey that an FPO Management undertook from its date of inception to reaching maturity and the various developments it underwent throughout this journey.
This case study has been crafted to assist in placing a set of guidelines based on the field visit and provide an overview of SFS Mobile application that can significantly help FPOs based on our rich field visits and powerful mobile based advanced technology enablers.

In addition, this case study from SFS helps to:
SFS Solution
Through the following organized approaches, SFS enables FPO with product traceability. The key focus and feature areas include; however not limited to:

Results

The SFS Field Visits and collaboration with FPOs and Farmers proved extremely fruitful based on the key discussions on the following:
Existing setup:
The FPO supply seeds to farmer once the cultivation is completed. Harvested grains are directly procured from Farmers. Farmer only need to share the agriculture input and other expenditure. FPO’s don’t have control with other expenditure.
Key Factors:

Data Refineries

Automated algorithms that constantly validate data from various sources to accurately represent and weed out any errors at the source level.

Agriculture in the last century has been witnessing various forms of revolutions in the practices and produces. The capabilities of Digital technologies have made it possible to collect and use critical farm-data from the farms to help field operations more insight-driven results leading to better production and efficiency. As more and more countries are coming to know the benefits of Digital Farming innovations, the market shares for it are growing considerable over the years. With state-of-the-art advanced technology capabilities, SFS offers a wide-range of solutions to the farming industry globally.
