Russia: Intterra is Integrating Farmers, Suppliers, Advisors, Traders, Bankers on 5 Million Acres
Earlier this month, a Russian agtech startup called Intterra entered into a partnership with global agribusiness Syngenta to use its digital platform in Russia, connecting more than 100 farmers across 2 million hectares (nearly 5 million acres) of cropland in 2019 to its SkyScout Advisor tool, writes Louisa Burwood-Taylor on AgFunder News.
SkyScout will aim to help Syngenta managers increase their productivity and the agronomic support they offer to their clients.
“The solution is first and foremost aimed at improving the quality of Syngenta’s customer support for those who use our products. It will be accessible for both, our field experts and agronomists at farms, thus, making it possible to build an instant mutual connection and promptly respond to changes in fields, while ensuring the best possible impact of our products. Eventually, this will increase profits for our customers. Our cooperation with Intterra will be a significant step forward towards the implementation of digital agriculture systems in Russia,” said Jonathan Brown, director Syngenta Russia in a statement.
