New Delhi. Switzerland-based agrochemical company Syngenta has introduced a feature in its mobile app to identify pest or disease attack on crops. The company said in a statement that it has introduced a new feature ‘Crop Doctor’ in its crop-wise ‘Grower App’ introduced in August this year.
Sushil Kumar, Managing Director (MD) and Country Head, Syngenta India said that farmers globally are facing multiple challenges including climate change, soil erosion and loss of biodiversity. He said that the newly added feature would be very helpful for the farmers.
