In the rapidly evolving world of agriculture technology (AgTech), SourceTrace has emerged as a leading player, driving innovation and bringing modern technologies to the forefront of the agriculture sector. With a strong emphasis on ensuring food security and promoting farmers’ prosperity, SourceTrace has been instrumental in creating exemplary success stories in India and putting the country on the global map. SourceTrace’s commitment to bridging gaps in the agriculture sector is evident through its comprehensive suite of solution to digitize agriculture/food value chains and its footprint in various agricultural domains. Let’s take a closer look at some of the key areas where SourceTrace has made a significant impact.
SourceTrace has played a pivotal role in digitizing the Haryana Horticulture Department, enabling a knowledge-based farming community through extensive use of information technology. This initiative aims to provide better farmer services, connect farmers to clusters and farmer-producer organizations (FPOs), and create linkages for FPOs to markets, producers, exporters, and processors. By deploying SourceTrace solutions, Haryana horticulture has witnessed improved access to real-time data on farmer details, enhanced connectivity with input manufacturers, and streamlined marketing linkages for FPOs. In addition, farmers are equipped with mobile applications to provide them with good agricultural practices at their fingerprints and also communicate and seek advice from the experts. Furthermore, SourceTrace has made significant contributions to the cotton value chain through partnerships with renowned organizations such as Chetna Organic Producer Company. By deploying SourceTrace’s DATAGREEN platform, Chetna has achieved enhanced traceability in the organic cotton value chain. Real-time data collection, accurate information monitoring, and digitization of the organic internal control system (ICS) have enabled Chetna to ensure transparency in production, procurement, and the flow of goods throughout the value chain. This has not only improved social and environmental practices but also strengthened Chetna’s credibility as a trusted source of organic cotton.
SourceTrace’s impact extends beyond horticulture and cotton. In the realm of high-value commodities, SourceTrace has collaborated with global leaders such as Firmenich for crops like jasmine and mint and Griffith Foods for Chilli and turmeric in India. By leveraging SourceTrace’s platform, these collaborations have achieved traceability, ensuring the authenticity and quality of the produced flavors, perfumes, and spices. Such collaborations are crucial for maintaining consumer trust and establishing a sustainable supply chain in these industries
In Nigeria, SourceTrace’s DATAGREEN platform has been utilized to support the Central Bank of Nigeria’s flagship Anchor Borrower program, digitizing the input subsidy distribution process. With the platform’s features like farmer profiling, QR code scanning, and transparent record-keeping, more than 200,000 farmers have been digitized, and 60,000 farmers have availed input subsidy benefits. In Zimbabwe, SourceTrace’s EFIS-GMB system has revolutionized the grain marketing sector. The Grain Marketing Board (GMB) has leveraged SourceTrace’s platform to manage loans, procure grains from registered farmers, and facilitate digital payments. GMB’s collaboration with SourceTrace has streamlined operations, ensured fair trade, and enabled faster and accurate payments.
