Bayer Crop Science:
Bayer CropScience’s shares hit 52 week high and surged over 4% on 16th June 2020, after the company informed the exchange about the tie-up ITC to market its crop protection products to farmers. The partnership with ITC has commenced as a pilot project in Mysore, Karnataka and will gradually be expanded to other geographies across India.
With Covid-19 disrupting farming operations and on-farm advisory this initiative will help farmers avail agri-inputs and digital advisory on a timely basis. ITC and Bayer are jointly training and on-boarding retailers to cater to farmers’ orders placed through e-Choupal.
Over 42,000 ITC farmers, covering 60,000 hectares across 1,100 villages in Mysore region will benefit from the partnership with Bayer. Farmers can place their orders for Bayer products through the e-Choupal 4.0 platform and track their orders.
