We strive to get down to the basics and take control of the entire value chain. In order to have that competitive advantage, we partner with farmers at the ground level and help them improve their farming practices which in turn results in better quality and higher yields. Our services in this vertical are divided in the following areas
Traditional Orchard Development – HN Agriserve’s pre-harvest team, in colloboration with its core farmers has setup model orchards that focus on disease control, pesticide management, yield and quality within the given traditional orchard structure
High-density Orchard Development – On average, the apple production per hectare in Kashmir is about 15 MT. On the contrary, some of the countries in Europe have six times more yield per hectare. To bridge the gap, HN AgriServe’s pre-harvest team has developed a model orchard with M9 based high-density orchard so that farmers can achieve a learning curve before replanting their own orchards
After HN Agriserve’s pre-harvest team established the high-density orchard, farmers showed willingness and drive to replant their traditional orchards with high-density plants. In order to cater to farmer’s needs, the company had to develop nurseries to grow the plants that farmers need. We have developed a two hectare model nursery in order to plan root-stock and in turn create inventory of plants locally.
We have developed customized solutions to cater to our farmers’ needs. Our HN pre-harvest team provides orchard management services based on the needs of the orchard and farmer’s willingness to follow the orchard management program.
The pre-harvest team works very closely with every farmer to implement and monitor the program in order to achieve the performance metrics set forth by the team and the farmer mutually.
