Sohan Lal Commodity Management (SLCM) Group has welcomed the 25-year roadmap laid down by Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the country’s all-around development in his public address on India’s 75th Independence Day. SLCM has also welcomed the government's proposal to enhance the views and expertise of scientists to modernise the nation’s agriculture sector.
According to SLCM, the creation of warehousing facilities at the block level is notable. The initiative will go a long way to not only ensure proper storage facilities for agri commodities but also help curb wastage significantly.
Sandeep Sabharwal, CEO, SLCM, “We have successfully implemented solutions like AgriReach and AgriSuraksha that are embedded in technologies like the internet of things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML). In a country like India where post-harvest losses are pegged at nearly 10 per cent, the solutions have helped in not only substantially reducing wastage of agri commodities to 0.5 per cent irrespective of infrastructure, crop or geographic location but also helped in significantly curtailing pilferage."
