The field of agriculture is continuously changing. Staying abreast with the latest advancements is a challenge especially for the far flung or marginal farmers. UPL addresses this challenge through its initiatives by working on a local level continuously and ensuriing that the latest in farming practices is easily accessible to them at appropriate times.
At UPL, we don’t only innovate and develop best agricultural practices but also work towards their dissemination for the welfare of the farming community as well as general public. Inaugurated on 30th April, 2017, the UPL CAE provides free practical training of modern scientific agriculture practices along with accommodation to farmers or agriculture students from across India or overseas.
Since 2015, we have also been training growers in selected areas of rural West Africa in how to safely use crop protection products. Through our subsidiary Callighana, we expanded this training program to Ghana in October 2017. This innovative training program is called «Nguso Papa» and is offered free of charge to cocoa growers and technicians in the region.
‘Aplique Bem’ meaning ‘Apply Well’ was born out of our awareness that an agrochemical application, especially resistance management in crops must occur with responsibility. Aplique Bem functions as an itinerant training program for the growers. The objective is to spread knowledge and provide assistance in the responsible use of the latest technology to avoid losses during product application and minimize the risk of environmental and food contamination.
Successful in Brazil, Mexico, Bolivia, Colombia, Ivory, Coast Republic of Mali and Republic of Ghana.
Aplique Bem’s importance in Brazilian agriculture has been duly recognized:
A farmer needs various inputs, other than what to grow; he needs the right advice, the right resource mix and the right implements to maximize farm productivity.
