Rural technology platform for sugarcane farmers

Apr 02, 2013

The Sugarcane Information System (SIS) is a technical platform to streamline interaction between farmers, sugar mills and societies through SMS, IVRS and web portals that provide free of cost services and information to farmers in Uttar Pradesh.

Sugarcane cultivation

The sugarcane farmers have benefited from SIS system in two main ways: first, they are able to access market information from sugar mills and societies without having to waste time or make numerous travels to the offices. Instead they are updated on market information detail via SMS, IVRS or websites.

Second, they have benefitted monetarily through increased quantity of sale of sugarcane to sugar mills, higher weight of supply due to fresh sugarcane, and increase in area under sugarcane.

SIS provides complete transparency into the sugarcane industry benefitting farmers, sugar mills and the societies. Technological intervention has replaced the manual system of previous functionalities and improved efficacy, thereby, resulting in higher profits and better cane productivity. The success of SIS can be up-scaled and replicated in other states to improve living standards of targeted beneficiaries.
