Telangana government and International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics (ICRISAT) on 7 July 2015 signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to improve profitability of farmers.

The MoU was signed by C Parthasarathi, Secretary and Agri-Production Commissioner; Jayesh Ranjan, Secretary, IT, Electronics & Communications; and ICRISAT Director General David Bergvinson.

Highlights of the MoU
Under this MoU, the organisation will provide Information and Communication Technology (ICT)-based knowledge sharing platforms and other agricultural innovation initiatives to farmers in order to improve their productivity.

The partnership will explore areas of collaboration in the field of digital agriculture along agriculture value chain and also explore the possibilities of ICRISAT playing an active role in the T Hub (an incubator launched by the Telangana government).

The partnership will help launch innovative digital platforms that aim to revitalise information dissemination in rural areas, provide expert systems for providing real time advisories and ensure better access to market information by small-holder farmers in the state.

It will also enable state government to create new economic opportunities through digital agriculture and enable to create direct linkages between consumers and farmers.
