India has over 100 million farmers who face challenges ranging from duplication of agri inputs, substandard products and the lack of tehincal know-how to grow their crop. These problems have led to very low farm productivity, resulting in Indian yields being lower than the world average for most of the crops.
AgroStar is solving these challenges by providing real time solutions to farmers through its technology platform accessible to the farmer by a simple “missed call” and it’s android app. AgroStar has over 1 million farmers connected on its platform and is currently operational in the states of Gujarat, Maharashtra and Rajasthan.
AgroStar is a “direct-to-farmer” m-commerce platform that has built a technology platform and uses data analytics and agronomy expertise to provide real time solutions to farmers in India.
