Project Overview

Through a partnership with Agribusiness Systems International (ASI), Wrigley is conducting a pilot study on mint farming in Uttar Pradesh, India. This pilot study is evaluating several aspects of mint cultivation including more efficient irrigation techniques such as drip-and-sprinkler irrigation.

Through a partnership with Agribusiness Systems International (ASI), Wrigley is conducting a pilot study on mint farming in Uttar Pradesh, India. This pilot study is evaluating several aspects of mint cultivation including more efficient irrigation techniques such as drip-and-sprinkler irrigation. In 2016, good agricultural practices including two new cultivars, two irrigation techniques and different mulching practices were trialled on 40 test plots in Uttar Pradesh. The results showed that water use can reduce significantly, while increasing yields by 50-100%. Based on these promising results, Wrigley is scaling up to work with 1,000 farms in 2017.
