ACI Crop Care, a strategic business unit under ACI Formulations Limited, has been providing solutions to farmers’ pest related problems since its inception in 1996. 

They have been offering similar solutions to the farmers on their digital platforms as well. 

In countries like Bangladesh, the usage of technology in agricultural development especially in remote areas used to be low due to infrastructural difficulties and psychological barriers, read a press release of ACI.  

However, the scenario is different now, thanks to the rapid advancement initiative taken by the Information and Communication Technology Ministry to facilitate internet service in rural areas.

Few organizations are now making the best out of this situation by influencing the communication pattern, and sharing information with farmers; ACI Crop Care is one of them. 

The official Facebook page of ACI Crop Care (www.facebook.com/acicropcare) is a one stop solution for all kinds of pest related problems that a farmer can face, read the release.

Hundreds of farmers inquire and seek solutions in many different ways on the page every day, added the statement. 

Abdur Rahman, general manager of Marketing of Crop Care unit, said: “Diseases and insects can be very detrimental for crops and within a night it can damage acres of land, so thinking about its time sensitiveness we thought we should come up with solutions that farmers can be benefitted from instantly and Digital is the way to go. 

“So, we have a separate team who are working day and night to serve farmers with the right solutions at the right time.” 

Researchers believe if more entities come forward to offer such digital solutions then very soon we all may witness a “silent technological revolution” in our agriculture sector, the statement said.
