February 15, 2022 – Kacific Broadband Satellites and Farmer Charlie will bring affordable satellite-powered agricultural information and expertise to farmers in remote and isolated places across South East Asia and the Pacific. The companies have signed an MoU supporting sustainable development and agriculture in small holdings across the region. Kacific and Farmer Charlie will work together to deliver agricultural advice, localized weather information, and agribusiness information – including data from in-field sensors – to smallholder farmers and agribusinesses, helping them improve land management and food production using smart digital tools. It will also help them reduce post-harvest loss, better manage the risk of drought, floods, and other extreme weather events and address the impacts of climate change. The companies share a common vision of helping farming and rural communities achieve meaningful economic, social, and environmental outcomes and impacts in support of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The agreement will extend Farmer Charlie’s reach into remote communities in the South East Asian and Pacific region, and enhance Kacific’s overall offerings to include Farmer Charlie’s expertise and solutions. It will bring fast, affordable broadband directly to the field, where connected weather and in-field sensors, together with other low-cost IoT devices, will be able to deliver agribusiness information at a cost that small holdings and remote communities can afford.
