Idea of formation
The idea of providing SaaS based services to agribusinesses came to Mr. Krishna Kumar after observing the agrarian crisis looming large on the rural areas of Karnataka in 2010 where local farmers were facing a gamut of problems ranging from non-availability of finance, climatic vagaries, soil degradation, pest infestation and diseases, operational inefficiencies, and no predictability of yield. Taking a resolution on doing his bit to prevent farmers’ suicides and avert the agrarian crisis, Kumar left his high rising career at GE and set up CropIn Technology Solutions- an agriculture technology solutions start-up that would address several pain points of millions of farmers across the country.
Creating Digital Agriculture Eco-System
Modern technology in agriculture is more than just the usage of mobile applications or a hardware system to automate redundant processes and reduce dependency on human labour. Although options are quite limited at present, users of smart farming solutions opt for a UI/UX that is both flexible and extremely convenient to use. This ranks higher on the priority list, especially when agribusinesses operate across geographies and employ people with different levels of tech proficiency.
Digitizing farms in their own style:
It was in 2010 when the core team of CropIn came together with the idea to transform Indian agriculture—to make it more productive and profitable for the marginal farmer. By pooling in their expertise and tech capabilities, Krishna Kumar, Kunal Prasad and Chittaranjan Jena designed first of CropIn’s agriculture solutions, ‘SmartFarm’. SmartFarm is a robust and flexible farm management solution that incorporates end-to-end solutions for data-driven decision making for multiple stakeholders in the agri-ecosystem. Its real-time satellite- and weather-based advisory enables accurate output predictability for agribusinesses and other agricultural organizations, while making businesses and farm operations exceedingly efficient.
By recommending a customised package of practices for each crop, SmartFarm also ensures sustainable farming for a produce that is high is both quality and quantity, by using only the right inputs at the right time. More importantly, SmartFarm’s geo-tagging feature enables accurate measurement of farm acreage, and also helps to log alerts for pest infestation and diseases from the precise location.
SmartWare is a pack-house solution that brings about digitization of various warehouse processes gives visibility into processes in a warehouse, regardless of its magnitude or its physical location. Users can now manage, process and audit the inventory without having to visit the warehouse and manually locate the area or item of concern. In addition to this, one can scan the QR code on processed items in the warehouse to know the movement of the item all the way from the farm, making its entire journey highly traceable.
Firstly, farm-to-fork traceability helps with quality control, wherein issues in the food supply chain can be identified much before it can cause irreparable or severe damage.
Secondly, it builds trust among consumers of the product when they are aware of the processes that went into bring the produce to their table and can decide for themselves if a product is safe for consumption or not.
One of the major reasons why agriculture is not as sustainable or productive as expected is that there continues to exist an element of unpredictability. Unexpected changes in climatic conditions around the world lead to numerous problems including droughts, flash floods, storms and a major rise or dip in temperature which can also lead to an incidence of pest infestation or crop diseases. With the increasing difficulty in forecasting the future and preparing in advance for events such as these, farmers and agribusinesses are at a loss.
To monitor and mitigate such risks, CropIn launched its AI- and ML-powered platform ‘SmartRiskTM’ in 2018. It is a predictive and prescriptive solution with capabilities to detect cropping patterns and predict the future of a crop. This forecasting intelligence highlights the associated risk and opportunities for various agri-stakeholders, such as banks and NBFCs, insurance companies, commodity traders, sourcing managers and Government bodies too.
