At a time when farming has been costly due to increase in the cost of production coupled with climate change, a start-up from Indore has been helping farmers to earn better revenue. Spare a few minutes to know more about the start-up.
Traditional methods of farming
The farmers in India have been relying on traditional methods, local market dynamics and increasing weather unpredictability for the past several generations.
The price of agriculture has risen consistently over the years, which has hit their pockets massively. To tackle such issues and seeing an opportunity, an Indore-based agri-tech start-up called Gramophone started working to provide a solution to farmers that would help them.
Gramaphone working for the farmers
Launched in 2016, Gramophone strives to create a difference in farming by offering data-led agronomy intelligence, technology solutions to the farmers which enable the purchase of the right kind of agri-input leading to higher yields.
The company empowers farming decision-makers with knowledge, making farming scientific, data-driven, and intelligent. Now a farmer can buy Agri inputs, get access to knowledge and sell the produce on a single platform. The full-stack approach makes their life better. Through its Krishi Mitra app, it serves as the point of access for farmers and offers them agri-advice on crops, soil, weather etc.
