The attractiveness in generating a bumper crop is often contrasted by the extensive planning that goes into it.
UPL strengthens farmer viability through an engagement across continents, across every stage of the agricultural lifecycle – and across products. The result is that UPL provides farmers with total crop solutions.
UPL is a responsible corporate citizen. Over the years, the company has strengthened it's focus to responsible environment management. The result is that the company provides farmers with the right product mix that enhances crop output; besides, it provides knowledge, training and holistic farmer support that makes it possible to enhance farm viability in a sustainable way.
At UPL, we recognise that farming is a challenging occupation. The farmer needs more than a focus on what to grow; he needs the right advice, the right resource mix and the right implements to maximize farm productivity. In December 2009, UPL launched the unique concept of Unimart, a chain of farm advisory & solution centers in India and Africa. Unimart is a one-stop solution center for all farm requirements that provides expert advice, quality products and necessary guidance to enhance farming practices. The result of this far-reaching initiative has been an attractive increase in income per acre of crop produce translating into an improved standard of living across regions.
In the business of farming, there is a premium on the need for superior and timely advice. In response to this evident need, UPL launched Adarsh Kisan Center, a remote digital advisory call center for farmers in India. This unique helpline resolves crop-related farmer queries / concerns / issues. The call centre comprises query handlers conversant in all major Indian languages and English. The result is that this timely UPL service has emerged as a convenient problem-solver.
In the business of farming, the challenge lies not only in educating farmers on the benefits of pest control; the challenge also lies in introducing them to superior spraying technologies. UPL’s Adarsh Farm Services offer mechanized field spraying services resulting in time and cost savings. This initiative, which extends technology use to marginal farmers, helps reduce labor costs and pest damage following scientific and uniform spraying coupled with accurate dosage application.
In a conventional occupation like farming, the challenge lies in absorbing cutting-edge technologies with the objective to enhance viability. UPL’s training schools educate farmers in the efficacy and management of cutting-edge farm equipment. This timely intervention makes it possible for farmers to balance manual and mechanized labor, optimizing costs.
When farmers select to allocate a significant part of their farms to a single crop (banana in this case), there is always the risk of the unforeseen. UPL’s Trust++ is an integrated solutions platform for banana growers in Latin America. Thousands of banana growers access quality fungicides manufactured by UPL, which facilitates the permanent monitoring of Sigatoka, access to weather reports, and online record books for stock control etc. The platform also provides a convenient access to information on contemporary technologies, markets and global developments. The result is that UPL is not merely providing a platform; it is creating a community.
