With the most up-to-date digital technology, it reaches farmers all over India and supports them to ensure they achieve a better yield by adhering to the package of practices supplied with them in their native dialect.
Once farmers get enrolled, their farm is geo-tagged for farm-level monitoring, they start getting customised crop management advisory, weather forecast, irrigation advisory, etc. The app also links the farmers directly to Agri experts to resolve their queries. It also offers post-harvest market linkages to ensure they get best prices for their yield. In case they don’t produce the assured minimum yield even after following the package of practices, the firm gives them timely compensation.
