Problem: What problem is this initiative trying to address?

This initiative is trying to address issue of healthyfying the agriculture. There is too much of carcinogenic agro-chemicals present in our food chain and we want to get rid of it.
Some of them are banned globally but allowed in India.
We don't want farmer to suffer yield losses by just going the organic way of farming.
We are building a network of trained professional who will be absorbed in the distribution and application monitoring system.
This will definitely create employment in the rural area.

Solution Summary: What is the proposed solution? What do you see as its most promising aspects for creating shared value?

What is the proposed solution?
Our nano-nutrients can replace chemical pesticides and other harmful agro-chemicals for crop cultivation. It does not have any crop specific characteristics. It has universal appeal.
This will help to safeguard our environment & food-chain ecosystem.
It is cost effective and just one litre can be use for 1 time spraying on 5 acres of crop.

Founding story: Share a story about the "Aha!" moment that sparked the beginning of this initiative.

As an innovator and inventor in 6 patents, I was scouting for Ideas and existing technologies which can replace harmful agro-chemicals. That time, I found ~ 40 different products in the open domain, out of which, only one product intrigued me the most and that was Nualgi Foliar spray. Its a 12 minerals coated with nano-silica which boost photosynthesis and improves yield as well as immunity of crops. There is no hormone or any harmful active compound in it and its being promoted as growth nutrient. Then we partnered with the Nualgi's manufacturing company and its inventor. Once we heard his side of story of how much pain he has taken to promote such unique patented technology inspite of pressures from the fertilizer lobbies, at that time we decide that my company can supplement his mission and promote the technology, create job and good health using our scientific techno-commercial bend.
