GroGenesis, a global agriculture technology company, announced last week the official signing in Phnom Penh of a major distribution agreement with Curewel International.
The agreement will allow Curewel International to distribute AgraBurstPRO in Cambodia, Laos, Sri Lanka and Vietnam.
AgraBurstPRO is an all-natural, non-GMO agricultural input produced by GroGenesis that improves the ability of plants to efficiently access nutrients in fertilisers, resulting in the need for less fertiliser, improved water retention in soil and increased drought tolerance, as well as increased yields and income for farmers, according to the company.
Sandeep Majumdar, chairman and managing director of Curewel International, said the company was pleased to partner with GroGenesis to distribute AgraBurstPRO in the region.
“I have a very real passion to make a significant difference in the agriculture of my country and the Southeast Asia region where so many people are engaged in growing food for their families and earning an income to buy necessities and discretionary consumer products,” he said.
“Any improvement in the return on investment in agriculture flows throughout every country’s economy. We feel we can have a major impact on agriculture in Southeast Asia by working with GroGenesis to introduce AgraBurstPRO to regional farmers and enterprises.”
Richard Kamolvathin, the president and CEO of GroGenesis, said farmers can now decide to rehabilitate their soil with a cost-efficient organic input while, at the same time, enjoying greater yields and higher returns on their crops.
“The opportunities to help farmers around the world transition from conventional chemical farming toward non-GMO and ultimately organic are in great need,” Mr Kamolvathin said.
“Global food security will continue to be under stress and green science will continue to see increased demand. We look forward to working closely with Curewel International to introduce AgraBurstPRO to Cambodia and the rest of Southeast Asia.”
