FarmERP ties up with Maha Farmers Producer Company (MAHAFPC)
A Farmer Producer Company is a meld between cooperative societies and private limited companies with integrated services. These services allow for the betterment of the condition of farmers in India. A well-known fact panning across various discussions and debates since a long time is that the circumstances surrounding the farmers in our country are not the best as of date. 70% of India’s rural households depend primarily on agriculture for their daily source of income. 82% of these farmers are small or marginal. The productivity of Indian farms is below that of Brazil, the United States, France and other nations. To bridge this gap, while increasing the efficiency of the farmers as well, companies take initiatives and converge forcollaborations.
