ICRISAT

ICRISAT( International Crops Research Institute for the Semi-Arid Tropics) and NABARD (National Bank For Agriculture & Rural Development)  jointly organized a workshop and interactive session for Bankers and policy makers across India on the topic of Digital Agriculture.

Pakaj Diwan, Co-Founder  of Block91 was invited for a keynote session where he spoke about the role of Blockchain and how Blockchain can be a gamechanger in Digital Agriculture. He also shared the case studies that Idealabs is currently implementing with some of its clients in the space of Agriculture traceability and supply chain management.

The session was received with a lot of enthusiasm and the participants had several questions and queries about the implementation of blockchain. Idealabs has also been invited by NABARD to build a few prototypes as part of their new initiative where they partner with industry and build prototypes.  The grassroot level understanding of bankers from NABARD and the technical know-how of Block91 can certainly create a huge impact.
