Get insights on farmers & farming households

In a country such as Myanmar, data is scarce and data insights are extremely valuable. We understand that you would want to make decisions that are not just based on intuition or assumptions. 

Therefore we offer extensive data reports that can help you in making your decisions about farming and the rural population. Through the Golden Paddy platform we offer several types of data insights:
  • Farming Insight Reports: What kind of crops do farmers grow? How many acres of land do they have?
  • Rural Household Insight: Gain insights about Myanmar's rural population
  • Surveying Insights: Our in-app survey tool makes it possible to collect insights from targeted users all over Myanmar
  • Market Price Reports: Detailed market price reports of local markets on various crops
We collect these insights through our Golden Paddy platform. We can customize the data insights exactly to your needs. Get in touch with us to find out how we can help, or look here for more information. Let's start making data-driven decisions about farmers and farming households. 

Our press coverage this month

This month and last month we have been getting quite some media coverage, with multiple parties writing about Impact Terra and our Golden Paddy platform. Word is spreading that mobile technology can help farmers improve their livelihoods, and that we are contributing to that cause.

Alter helps frontier ventures on their path to scale. The Alter team came to visit our office last month to learn more about how we intend to transform the lives of even more farmers and farming households.

Farmers that actively use the information on the range of development subjects we provide, can become more independent and improve their livelihoods. 

Our understanding of farmers' needs and wants stands at the base of our day-to-day activities, the farmer is central to all we do. Because if the farmer does not see value in what we do, we do not have any.
