Mission

We believe that information and digital services can empower people to sustainably improve their well-being. Moreover, we believe that these information services can be delivered at scale and at a very low cost per user to improve incomes and well-being, and to improve environmental stewardship. PxD's vision is to end information poverty. We will achieve this by delivering actionable information and other scalable services to people living in poverty so that they can sustainably improve their well-being.

Ama Krushi

PxD’s services are currently reaching more than two million Indian farmers with customized advice on a range of crops (rice, cotton, coffee, horticulture), animal products (dairy and fisheries).Our current service footprint extends across six states – Gujarat, Odisha, Karnataka, West Bengal, Tamil Nadu, and
Kerala – and multiple agro-climatic zones. Our services leverage a two-way mobile communications channel to reach farmers at scale. Our services include weekly push calls with recommendations timed to the agricultural season; and an interactive voice response (IVR) hotline that allows farmers to listen to previous push calls and ask questions to be answered by specialists within 48 hours. PxD also uses mobile
technology to provide information to public extension workers to help them perform their jobs more effectively and to reinforce information provided directly to farmers.
