Sima Products & Digital Green Partner to Teach Sustainable Farming Techniques in India 

(OAKMONT, PA) February 3, 2010 – Sima Products, an Oakmont-based consumer electronics company announced a new partnership with Digital Green, a Microsoft Research spinoff, to teach better, sustainable agricultural practices to rural farmers in India. Sustainable farming techniques provide stability to villages that desperately need it by reducing input costs, saving dying crops, creating consistent harvests and supplying more food to villagers.

            Digital Green works to teach improved practices to rural farmers such as seed treatment, system of rice intensification, and vermicomposting. A major challenge to the project is reaching villages in remote locations that have little or no electricity and poor road connectivity. Digital Green’s CEO Rikin Gandhi turned to Sima Products for technical help. Sima provided lightweight, battery-operated projectors, which allowed Digital Green team members to reach many more farmers and villages. In 2009, nearly 2500 farmers participated in video screenings across 196 villages.

            “Sima is a global consumer electronics company interested in partnering with companies and non-profits from all over the world. Our partnership with Digital Green is just one example of Sima being a global citizen,” says Ilana Diamond, CEO of Sima Products.

I am interested in purchasing the SIMA Super Sports Pouch. It says it has been discontinued. Do you by chance have any of them left or something similar. We are sailors and this is perfect for storing valuables so they do not get wet.

Thank you ,

We may need that technology in the large tent city areas here in the USA thanks to the economic turmoil created by our Mr “Hope and Change” president.
