HC partnered with the Netherlands Development Organization (SNV) to develop HeveaGrow digital agronomy training modules for rubber smallholders in Indonesia. The high-quality instructional videos were curated by both organizations and are based on SNV’s Better Management Practices materials.
After the production of the first video, we conducted a small-scale user testing with smallholders. Their feedback was taken into consideration when producing subsequent videos, which are available on the HeveaConnect YouTube channel in English and in Bahasa Indonesia.
These modules are HC’s first step towards extending our service offerings beyond analytics and data streams, to the tools needed to react to the risks uncovered by the data. These tools can help companies design on-the-ground interventions to mitigate identified risks and increase the sustainability of their products.
