Using technology to reduce input costs & provide better choice for Indian farmers by Creating India’s Largest Direct-to-farmer Marketplace.

An ecosystem to disrupt the Traditional Supply Chain to directly serve the farmers at scale via a singular access market.
Sectors: AGRITECH | MARKETPLACE | CONSUMER TECH


We have built a solution delivery model that addresses the challenges of regional restrictions, farmer’s trust, last mile delivery, buyer knowledge and awareness, and sellers onboarded.

COMPETITIVE ADVANTAGE:

We are already India’s largest pure D2F Agri-input player in a competitive set that includes Dehaat, Agrostar, Gramaphone, Unnati, Bidhaat. Our technology platform is also one of our strong differentiators.

OPPORTUNITY:

The farming sector is facing a big crisis of rising input costs in the last 15-20 years. The 160 million farmer segment is a hugely under-served consumer leading to high costs, poor access to quality products & solutions (machinery). The barriers of remote geographical reach, licensing restrictions, regional crop variations and lack of product knowledge among farmers has created huge need gaps in the 3 Lakh crore (US$ 40Bn+) Agri-Inputs (Seeds, Agro-chemicals, Live-stocks & machinery) market which we are seeking to fill. A massive market with inefficiencies and an under-served consumer segment with a large base.
