"The collaboration will allow us to leverage ICRISAT's expertise and knowledge to develop innovative and sustainable solutions that benefit farmers and the agriculture sector as a whole."

ICRISAT Director General, Dr. Jacqueline Hughes, added: "The partnership with Zuari FarmHub aligns with our mission to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the semi-arid tropics. We are confident that this collaboration will result in the development of cutting-edge agricultural technologies that can be scaled up and adopted by farmers in India and beyond."

Zuari FarmHub has been at the forefront of providing innovative and sustainable solutions to farmers in India. The company offers a range of products and services such as seeds, fertilizers, pesticides, and farm machinery to help farmers improve their yields and profitability.
