PUNE: Farmpal opened the fourth collection center at Kopargaon, near Shirdi on 9 March. This area is the heart of onion cultivation and supplies onion all over India and outside India as well. With this collection center, Farmpal intends to make the market available for marginal onion farmers at their doorstep. The event witnessed the presence of over 150 farmers attended this event – who was very excited about working in this new model, where the market has come to them – with better pricing than the local mandis, no commissions, reduced transportation and most important payment directly into their bank accounts within 2-3 days.
The center is operational now with farmers selling their produce to FarmPal. They are delivering onions primarily, along with other local produce in smaller quantities. In the near future, FarmPal intends to advise and inform farmers on upcoming demand and what else they can grow and sell. This will help them diversify their crops and improve their earning potential.
The center was inaugurated by Mr. Ashok Rohmare, a trustee of K.J Somaiya College in Kopargaon, and a major landholder who produces fruits and vegetables on his 100+ acre farmland.
