Neighbourhood Agri Business Solutions Pvt.ltd (NABS) is the First START UP COMPANY IN AGRICULTURAL SECTOR assisted through KERALA STATE INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT CORPORATION Ltd. (KSIDC) by Government of KERALA.
Our programme for Urban agriculture MYFARM SUSTAINABLE ORGANIC VEGETABLE units in soilless media is the first venture undertaken in the startup initiative. This project is implemented using UV stabilized HDPE beds. The media for planting is a combination of enriched organic inputs, which is self-supportive and meets the nutrients for a cropping cycle. The constitution of the media is different for Leafy items and fruiting items. Our R&D wing develops this media combination after extensive field trials.
Under this project we are also extending continuous follow up support using a Production Task Force (PTF) and daily interaction with the clients through mobile application. PTF under take replanting operations and pest and disease management as per beneficiary’s requirements. Our objective is to ensure self-sustainability of urban families in SAFE TO EAT ORGANIC VEGETABLE production and domestic requirements. Our support services will ensure continuation of the programme even after the first crop cycle.
Neighbourhood will set up a PTF to give support and service to the customers engaged in this production process. This team will do the backend support and replanting process. This will ensure continuation of the programme and will help to maintain self-sufficiency. PTF includes a team of skilled workers and supervised by qualified persons. Growers can contact the PTF any time to avail their service.
All the participating growers will be linked using an IT enabled mobile app so that there will be daily interaction between the grower and expert team of Neighbourhood. It will enable two-way communication between grower and Neighbourhood agri team. This programme also helps in pooling and marketing the excess produce available with the grower. This plat form in long run will be developed to act as a plat form for grower customer interaction so that traceability is maintained in all products.
The primary objective of the Nutritional garden is to meet the household requirement of each grower. In addition to that if there any excess harvest it will be procured by Neighbourhood and will market it with complete traceability to farm. This will help the grower to generate an income in addition to the healthy safe to eat vegetables for own use.
All the products will be branded and marketed under the common brand NATURALE. The produce will be marketed with complete traceability to the grower. This will help to enhance the grower identity and will intern encourage the grower to continue with the cultivation process. An online marketing plat form also will created in addition to the home delivery subscription model. Will set up farmer’s counters at key location for easy customer access.
