WayCool and UPL Sustainable Agri Solutions Limited, a global leader in crop protection solutions, announced a strategic partnership. The alliance aims to provide farmers with comprehensive agronomic advisory services as well as holistic crop protection products to increase crop yield.

Commenting on the occasion, Sanjay Dasari, Co-founder, WayCool Foods, said, "India has a wide range of agro-climatic conditions, necessitating a diverse set of crop protection products. Changes in climate and farming practises frequently result in newer pest and disease infestations, which account for nearly 25% of productivity loss. As a result, crop protection has become even more important in terms of food security in the country.”

“Against this backdrop, we at WayCool are striving to transform the food value chain and are delighted to partner with UPL Sustainable Agri Solutions Limited, aligning our objectives of enhancing India’s food security, increasing farmer incomes, and working towards extending quality and safe food by presenting better products to our farming ecosystem.”

Adding to this, N Sendhil Kumar, Head – Outgrow & Farmer Engagement, WayCool Foods, said, “We are elated to bring UPL Sustainable Agri Solutions Limited into our partner network and look forward to enabling our farmers with one-stop access to high-quality inputs coupled with WayCool's technological solutions. With this agreement, UPL's products will be made available to large number of farmers in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Telangana & Tamil Nadu states, building on crop protection and impacting the farmer base positively on a larger scale.”

“In addition to effectively proving how natural farming increases profitability, Outgrow also enables state-of-the-art technology and know-how available to farmers. With this partnership, our farmers would now be better equipped to approach disease infestation and boost crop productivity through sustainable crop solutions,” he added.

Commenting on the partnership, Ashish Dobhal, Regional Director, UPL Sustainable Agri Solutions Limited said, “We aim to build a holistic farmer ecosystem and be a game changer to make every single food product sustainable. This collaboration with WayCool will enable a larger set of farmers to get access to a balanced offering of superior quality crop protection and bio solutions, delivered through an advanced technological interface, making agriculture sustainable, enhancing farm yields, and improving farmer incomes.”
