Leaf Farmer Network (LFN)

Tradition and Technology in Tandem

Building digital agri-business ecosystems

LEAF, in a strategic partnership with MASTERCARD, has launched the LEAF Farmer Network. The Network digitizes forward market linkages, marketplaces, payments, and financial inclusion programs by connecting buyers, farming input suppliers, AgTechs, and banks with FPOs/farmers, helping create a commercially viable ecosystem with all relevant agriculture value chain players and equitable commercial exchange mechanisms. The LFN currently has over a  million farmers onboard and the numbers increase by the day!

Enabling Digital Management of Farms

LEAF’s Farm Data Management Portal, developed by Sagri Japan, helps in
harnessing the power of satellite data along with Artificial Intelligence and
Machine Learning. This agriculture service management tool allows
farmers to remotely monitor and manage their farms, enables and
enhances timely and efficient deployment of the solutions needed to
ensure soil and plant health thereby saving time, money, and effort in the
long run.

Managing and Measuring Impact

The execution and impact of our agricultural extension services are accurately monitored and measured using our very own tech-enabled tools This allows us to constantly track our processes and refine them in our constant journey towards growth and sustainability.

Integrated Cold Chain
Logistics Driven By Technology

Fresh produce goes through at least 7 intermediaries before reaching the shelves. The poor handling of the produce leads to 30% wastage and a reduction of 5-7% margin at each level. LEAF™, with technology at the helm of its integrated cold-chain logistics model, promises to deliver quality produce, while drastically reducing wastage.

Agro Processing For Better Products

Natural products are perishable and prone to microbial growth. With our processing methods, we ensure that they stay fresh and safe throughout the journey. The automated washing technology removes microbes, harmful pesticides and chemicals, without removing the nutrients.  

LEAF™, products are Safe and Dependable
