Model village: Where farmers use ICT tools for agriculture
Grameen Intel Social Business Ltd. has developed a Model village at ‘Borogachha’, located at Domar Upazila of Nilphamari district, where a number of farmers are using ICT tools for agriculture. Applying krishē service, GISB’s fertilizer recommendation software, the farmers have used perfect or comparatively less amount of fertilizers this time.
Lead farmer of Borogachha, agriculturist Pijush Kumar Roy is the entrepreneur of GISB providing the fertilizer recommendations to the farmers.
The concept of Model Village is where all the farmers will be aware of using ICT tools for agriculture. They will test soil and take fertilizer recommendations from krishē and will apply accordingly.
