Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
This project attempted to understand problems affecting fruit and vegetable farmers in Himachal Pradesh, India, and identify ways to alleviate them. To this end, we interviewed farmers, storage facilities, and a local farmers’ association, and conducted research into modern preservation practices. Our work indicated that cold storage in the region could be incredibly useful to apple farmers, but awareness and coordination are lacking. To help remedy this, we developed a mobile application and pamphlet helping connect farmers with cold storage.
