As a non-profit organization, Precision Agriculture for Development (PAD) supports smallholder farmers by providing customised agriculture extension advisory services to increase productivity, profitability, and environmental sustainability through a mobile service called ‘Krishi Tarang.’
Backed by a Harvard Business School randomised control trial, PAD helps farmers increase yields, lower costs, and implement new agricultural information. Additionally, PAD provides in-person, group, and mobile trainings so that smallholder farmers can learn how to use Krishi Tarang.
Currently, PAD operates in India, Kenya, Ethiopia, Rwanda, and Ethiopia.
As they continue to scale their operations, PAD aspires to improve the lives of 100 million smallholder farmers in India and Kenya.
