Delivering Crop Care Advisory Services to farmers

Katalyst signed a tripartite MoU with Samriddhi, a Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) project implemented by Helvetas Swiss Intercooperation, and telecom operator Banglalink, in order to link rural farmers with Banglalink’s “Krishi Jigyasha 7676” agri helpline.

Krishi Jigyasha, is a successful service where farmers can get crop related information by calling 7676. To make this service accessible to even more farmers, Katalyst formed an alliance with Samriddhi’s network of Local Service Providers (LSPs), which provide various advisory services to rural people.

The tripartite coalition will ensure that 1676 LSPs will use the Banglalink Public Calling Office (PCO) SIM to provide assistance to farmers in 16 Districts in the Rajshahi and Rangpur Divisions, and in the Sunamganj District in the Sylhet Division, at a lower rate.
