Our Bureau Hyderabad | Updated on March 12, 2018

The International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) has tied up with Self Employed Women’s Association (SEWA) of India to share Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based knowledge.

The association also calls for collaboration in agricultural innovation initiatives to help improve productivity and profitability of small farmers.

Both the organisations have signed a memorandum of understanding at Ahmedabad, an ICRISAT press release said here on Friday.

The agreement is expected to drive a series of innovative ICT platforms that aim to revitalise agricultural extension and education in rural areas and provide better access to knowledge and information by small farmers.

“Millions of small farmers worldwide could improve their yields, incomes and resilience if only they had better access to appropriate information and knowledge that helps them make informed choices about farming practices,” William Dar, ICRISAT Director-General, said.
