20 Most Promising Agriculture Technology Solution Providers - 2018

The agriculture industry in India is currently in a state of distress. Farmers protesting and committing suicides have been making the headlines in the country for quite some time now. Between the years 1998 and 2018, 300000 farmers ended their lives. If these figures don’t shake the collective consciousness of the nation, then what does? Amongst many reasons, dwindling income from the farm produce and inability to repay debts have been identified as the leading causes. These causes can again be linked to outdated and inefficient techniques and methods that Indian farmers often apply while farming. Challenges in irrigation, unfit soil, unsuitable seeds, inadequate storage facilities along with ill-implemented schemes have altogether contributed to the depreciating farm yield.

In the midst of this raging turmoil, the growing popularity of agriculture technology has bought a wind of welcome change. Leveraging the power of technologies such as satellite imaging, data analytics, artificial intelligence, blockchain etc. a number of businesses, especially start-ups have jumped into the scene with the mission to improve agriculture, minimize the effort farming de mands, maximize output and in the process provide the farmer with the opportunity for a better livelihood.
