Discovering Green Shoots

Agriculture has been one of the prime professions in India and globally. While it is also a mandate for financial institutions to lend or insure, the uncertainties of weather or lesser margins have frequently been the dampeners.Banking Frontiers conducted an interesting conversation with Industry leaders from Banks, Insurance, Supply chain and Agri Tech in association with The Weather company- An IBM Business, on Discovering Green Shoots. The discussion dwelled upon identifying strategies to put more money in the hands of the farmer, empowering tools that can help better the profitability and reduce frauds, and also the value additions that the bankers and insurers can provide to make this business more lucrative. It also touched upon what kind of technology roadmap can this sector look into for future-proofing the agri business.
