The Grow Asia Digital Learning Series is a series of events to engage agribusiness corporate leaders to support smallholder farmers in the adoption of digital tools. The objectives for the Grow Asia/Geodata 4 Agriculture and Water (G4AW) event are as follows:

  • To inspire stakeholders in agriculture, finance and/or insurance
  • To explore opportunities for cooperation and (future) investments in partnerships and companies, e.g. to scale up

Grow Asia is a multi-stakeholder partnership and its objective is to help smallholder farmers in South East Asia achieve greater prosperity and environmental sustainability. One way to do this is by driving the adoption of digital tools. The Grow Asia Digital Learning Series brings together corporate leaders from all corners of the world, Agri-Tech startups and ecosystem enablers to learn more about emerging technologies, as well as to uncover opportunities for scalable, impactful digital solutions that could be adopted by smallholder farmers.

The Grow Asia Digital Learning Event will feature with Geodata for Agriculture and Water (G4AW), bringing our projects and learnings from the region to Singapore. The event will explore how geodata, converted to information on climate, weather, and hazards, can be translated to customized agricultural advice to benefit food producers, and the opportunity areas around this model. This event is open for corporate leaders, Agri-Tech start ups and ecosystem enablers but by invitation only. For information on the event and possible attendance please reach out to jinquan@padang.co

There will be 11 projects presented out of the SE-Asia region, all of which use geodata in different ways. G4Indo aims to guarantee income of investments by smallholder food producers. Smallholder farmers in Bangladesh will benefit from GEOBIS’ as well as IDSS’ agricultural advice, and GEOPOTAO to prevent potato disease. In Vietnam, resilience of rice and coffee producing communities will be improved by Sat4Rice and GREENcoffee. In Indonesia, SMARTseeds will support farmers growing chilli, tomato and cucumber. Angkor Salad (Cambodia), Spice-Up (Indonesia), MYVAS4AGRI and SAM (Myanmar) provide agricultural advice to farmers. SAM (Myanmar) also provides financial services.

Join us on the 17th to find out more about the projects and the innovative ways in which space can be used in agricultural applications.
