With deep understanding of small holder markets, UPL has established a highly diversified business across all key crops and geographies. We enjoy a leading position in emerging markets, which will account for ~80% of projected agricultural production in the next three decades.
Driving advanced crop performance monitoring in Africa
UPL launched an initiative to monitor crops using drones, Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and other aerial/vision technologies. The objectives included monitoring crops at specific stages, recommending rectification, advancing solutions and ultimately predicting yield. This is a value-added initiative for both growers and distributors - monitoring every inch of the farm for early problem detection and responding with relevant actions.
UPL completed a successful commercial launch in South Africa and followed by a global roll-out.
