Lower Farming Costs
Apart from stable market access, our farmers benefit from the drastic reduction in farming costs. Most of our manpower consists of project staff who are dedicated to working closely with farmers, engaging and training them in organic & natural farming techniques. We promote the use of organic & natural alternatives to harmful pesticides and fertilizers. These organic& natural inputs can be prepared using resources on the farm which are freely available, and therefore eliminate the use of expensive chemical products. The costs are further reduced as we pick up the material from farm-gates and save the farmer transportation costs. Suminter also works directly with farmers, without the involvement of brokers who charge commission. Overall, these measures reduce the costs of the farmers by up to 35%.
