Drone services provider for agricultural sector BharatRohan Airborne Innovations has partnered with the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP). The collaboration focusses primarily on transforming agricultural methods in Telangana and Haryana, two states poised to promote sustainable crops, and forms part of the ‘Regional Inclusive Business Models in Agriculture and Food Systems’ initiative funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, BharatRohan Airborne Innovations informed in a statement. 

The statement said that with the support of ESCAP, BharatRohan aims to incorporate inclusive business practices and expand its reach and mission in the states of Telangana and Haryana.

The project further intends to involve women farmers in value chain activities actively. This ensures their active participation in the production process and promotes gender-inclusive agricultural practices. BharatRohan has also demonstrated its commitment towards inclusive business by signing a MoU with Endeva and Ecociate to receive coaching services as part of the ESCAP-supported inclusive business programme, added the statement.

Amandeep Panwar, CEO, BharatRohan, said in the statement, “As the CEO of BharatRohan, I am thrilled about our partnership with ESCAP. Our mission is to empower smallholder farmers and promote sustainable agriculture in Telangana and Haryana. We’re leveraging advanced hyperspectral technology to provide farmers with precise insights, reducing costs and ensuring top-quality, residue-free yields. Our dedication to inclusivity extends to gender-inclusive practices, actively involving female farmers in value chain activities to create additional income opportunities. This partnership is not just about innovation; it’s about making a tangible difference in the lives of farmers and fostering a sustainable future for agriculture.”

BharatRohan will enhance its expertise with the support of ESCAP to address regulatory challenges, enter international markets and provide essential training services to farmers. A key element of the strategic plan is the integration of technology solutions, such as drone crop monitoring services. Periodic training sessions, with the support of ESCAP, will be organised to promote effective communication with farmers, guiding them to adopt advanced agricultural practices.

“We are delighted to welcome BharatRohan as a valued member of the cohort participating in the inclusive business coaching programme supported by ESCAP. BharatRohan’s technology-driven solutions hold great significance for smallholder farmers, aiding them in crop monitoring and optimising input usage effectively. Moreover, their drone-based services have the potential not only to generate employment opportunities for local youth, but also to provide essential last-mile services to farmers in a sustainable fashion. Ecociate and Endeva look forward to work with BharatRohan on their path towards incorporating inclusive business practices,” said Santosh Gupta, Director, Ecociate Consultant, in the statement.
