The Multiplex group came up with an innovative initiative called Multiplex Farming. Multiplex farming is a form of collaborative agriculture where Multiplex will partner up with a landowner to help develop his/her barren land as well as semi-cultivated land. Reasons for non-cultivation of land can be based on various factors, such as landowners moving out of rural areas and migrating to cities, lack of cultivation techniques and knowledge, etc. This results in non-cultivation of
Land and loss of resources. In such cases, Multiplex farming will provide a flexible solution and helps to manage soil and crops by scientifically analyzing and providing proper solutions. Scope is to cover everything from the basic land preparation to managing the Farm & Marketing of products.
