FarmERP Fortifies Plantation
Management for India’s Second
Largest Phosphatic Fertilizer Player

India’s leading fertilizer manufacturer, headquartered in Southern India, was struggling to plan and manage the operations of its vast-sized Neem plantation. FarmERP customised its planning module and assisted the client to amplify its agricultural planning and management potential. Consequently, the client witnessed increased efficiency in the day-to-day operations, which further helped the company to make significant cost-reductions.

Introduction

Agriculture is fast moving towards the adoption of advanced technologies in order to ramp up the plantation management systems. The use of IoT-based tools, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and many other disruptive technologies have been instrumental in handling large-scale plantations. With bigger-sized plantations, planning and managing the huge number of trees, large quantities of farm inventories, and higher investments could be a massive challenge.

One of India’s leading agribusiness corporations wanted to streamline the agricultural functions of its Neem plantation, spread over an area of around 600 acres. Planning and managing agricultural activities of around 2 lakh trees required excellent managerial and technical expertise. Hence, the client chose FarmERP as its agritech partner to ensure the optimal functioning of its large-scale plantation.

FarmERP worked with the client as its tech-pillar and helped in digitally transforming plantation planning and management. With FarmERP’s support, the client managed to gain complete control over the end-to-end operations of their Neem plantation business.

Challenge

  • With the plantation spread over 600 acres, agricultural planning and management was extremely challenging.
  • Lesser visibility into the actual on-field plantation functioning increased the possibility of fraudulent agribusiness activities.
  • The client handled their record-keeping functions manually using excel sheets. This was extremely time-consuming, inefficient, and even resulted in data loss at times.
  • With the widely spread plantation, monitoring and managing labour as well as field supervisors, in real-time was difficult.
  • Bigger the size of plantations, lesser is its resilience to climate change events. This meant severe agricultural productivity challenges for the large-scale Neem plantation.

Further, FarmERP geotagged every tree and plot of the plantation to better understand the actual on-field parameters. FarmERP tailored its offerings to meet all the specific requirements of the client without any hassles.
