Kumron Srisopha


Quality over quantity for farming returns. 

Kumron has worked across various agri-input sectors and crops - throughout his experience he has often noticed a common trend.
“Using conventional methods, farmers often have to use a lot of chemicals and fertilizers. Of course, the farmer can get a lot of money at the end but they sometimes don’t consider the high input costs, giving them a small profit,” he says. 

This is why he was driven to join EWS-KT, as he hopes to educate farmers on how to efficiently and effectively use inputs to get maximum yields and profitability. 

“We constantly strive to improve. This includes the number of farmers we reach, as well as the growth of their knowledge to improve their lives,” he says.

Kumron’s experience has seen him work with agrochemicals, fertilizers and drip irrigation systems and with fruit, rice and other field crops. He now focuses on helping improve the knowledge of vegetable farmers as EWS-KT Manager for Thailand. 

“We want farmers to win and be proud of themselves as an important part of the Thai community.”
