The contract farming process at SAPOLIVE FARMS is designed to establish partnerships with farmers and provide them with comprehensive support throughout the agricultural cycle. Here is a detailed explanation of each step involved in the contract farming process:

Identification of the Crop: The process begins with identifying the specific crop that will be produced under the contract farming agreement. This can be based on market demand, seasonal suitability, or specific requirements from customers or businesses.

Farmer Registration: Farmers who are interested in participating in the contract farming program register themselves with SAPOLIVE FARMS. This allows us to establish a database of farmers and understand their capabilities, expertise, and available resources.

Verification of all Documents: To ensure transparency and legal compliance, all necessary documents related to land ownership, farming licenses, permits, and other regulatory requirements are thoroughly verified. This step helps establish the credibility and eligibility of the farmers participating in the contract farming program.

DPR (Detailed Project Report) and Valuation: A Detailed Project Report (DPR) is prepared, outlining the specific details of the farming project. This includes factors such as crop cultivation techniques, expected yield, resource requirements, and projected costs. A valuation may also be conducted to assess the economic viability and potential profitability of the project.

Approval (Accepted/Rejected): Based on the evaluation of the DPR and valuation, the contract farming proposal is reviewed, and a decision is made regarding its acceptance or rejection. Factors considered during the approval process include market demand, financial feasibility, and alignment with SAPOLIVE FARMS' sustainability and quality standards.

Identification of Customers: Once the contract farming proposal is approved, the next step is to identify potential customers or buyers for the cultivated crop. This may involve market research, understanding consumer preferences, and establishing partnerships with businesses or retailers.

Customer Registration: Customers interested in purchasing the agricultural products produced under the contract farming program register themselves with SAPOLIVE FARMS. This helps in establishing a buyer database and understanding their specific requirements.

Final Verification and Sanctions: Before proceeding with the farming activities, a final verification is conducted to ensure that all necessary legal and contractual formalities are met. This includes confirming the participation of farmers, finalizing the terms and conditions of the contract, and obtaining necessary sanctions or permissions from regulatory authorities, if applicable.

Post-Harvest Processing of the Products: After the crops are harvested, they undergo post-harvest processing, which may include cleaning, grading, packaging, and other value-added processes to ensure high-quality products that meet market standards. Connect with Logistics Companies (3rd Party): SAPOLIVE FARMS collaborates with reliable logistics companies to facilitate the transportation and distribution of the agricultural products from the farm to the customers. This ensures efficient and timely delivery, reducing post-harvest losses and maintaining product freshness.

Delivery: The products are delivered to the customers as per the agreed-upon terms and conditions. This involves coordinating with logistics partners, managing transportation logistics, and ensuring proper documentation and compliance with regulatory requirements.

Payment from Customer to Company: Once the products are delivered to the customers, they make payments to SAPOLIVE FARMS for the agricultural products they have received. This ensures that the financial aspect of the contract farming agreement is fulfilled.

Final Payment to Farmer (if any): Finally, SAPOLIVE FARMS ensures that the participating farmers receive their payments for the crops they have cultivated and supplied as per the contract farming agreement. This completes the financial transaction and provides the farmers with their due compensation.

The contract farming process at SAPOLIVE FARMS aims to create a mutually beneficial partnership between the company, farmers, and customers. By providing end-to-end support, from crop identification to post-harvest processing and delivery, we ensure
