We are driven by our mission to enable the farmer lifecycle by providing quality services at every phase of farming, from sowing to harvesting. Our goal is to be the first choice for a farmer for any agricultural services they are looking for. The latest capital infusion will definitely propel our growth and achievement of our goals,” added Santosh Danegoudar, Founder and CEO of Falca.
