Changing the behaviour of farmers through a modern digital product is not going to be easy. We have to be innovative and empathetic at the same time. The challenge for us will be to continuously engage with the farmer, finding relevance at every stage of the farming process and provide solutions for a variety of problems in different regions of the country. We have put together an ‘A’ team in our Mumbai office on this brand who have an ear to the ground and are compassionate towards this great initiative by Mahindra Krish-e”.
