Indian Government May Soon Set Up A Dedicated Cell For Agritech Startups

  • The platform will allow standardised data and new technologies to be accessed by everyone
  • We need to build a database related to all aspects of agriculture, said NRRA CEO Ashok Dalwai
  • India has more than 1,090 agritech startups currently

To promote entrepreneurship at the grassroots level, the Indian government may soon set up a dedicated cell for agriculture startups and small entrepreneurs. Through the platform, the government will ensure different technologies are uploaded and shared with the public. The idea is to encourage more startups in the agritech sector.
“There are numerous areas where startups can help farmers reduce costs and increase income,” said national rainfed area authority (NRRA) CEO Ashok Dalwai while addressing at a FICCI event.

The platform will ensure that standardised and structured data is accessed free of cost. “The biggest problem in getting data is that there is no data standardisation and no structure that can be uniformly interpreted. We need to start looking at building up of database related to all aspects of agriculture and how it can be digitally translated,” he said.

Agritech Startups In India

There are more than 1,090 agritech startups in India. According to Inc42 DataLabs, the total funding in agritech startups in India grew from $46.1 Mn 2017 to $66.6 Mn in 2018. Other than the big startups in the agriculture space including AgNext, Ninjakart, Dehaat, Samunnati, Farmart, many other agritech startups are also catching the attention of investors.

Agritech startup, Fasal, raised seed funding of $1.6 Mn led by Omnivore and Wavemaker Partners in October 2019. The IoT-SaaS platform plans to use the funding to build AI capabilities for each horticulture value chain where the company is focused.

Recently, Netherland development finance company, FMO Entrepreneurial Development Bank, announced that will soon be investing $5.2 Mn (INR 37.31 Cr) in Chennai-based WayCool Foods And Products for Infrastructure development. According to FMO, the company focuses on India’s fragmented food value chains and leverages technology and automation to improve logistics and distribution services, reduce food waste, increase farmer income and improve the quality of the product for the consumer.

In August 2019, Indore-based agritech startup Gramophone raised $3.5 Mn in an equity funding round. Existing investor Info Edge Ventures, along with Raveen Sastry, cofounder, Myntra and Asha Impact participated in the round. The funds were diverted to investment in product, data science and scale up operations across locations.

While the number of agritech startups has increased in the last few years, with farming being a $400 Bn industry in India, the growth of the sector is dependent on better government policies and further investments.

  48. GO!!!
    This phrase was said by the first cosmonaut on Earth – Yuri Gagarin. (Yuri Gagarin)
    He was the first astronaut on Earth. He was Russian! …
    Now Russia is becoming a strong country, gas pipelines, a vaccine against COVID-19, an army.
    Is this very reminiscent of the communist Soviet Union?
    How do you think?
    Now we have total control in our country. I am interested in the opinion of foreigners.

  61. Can’t wait for them to release their first game ^^ The game is addictive, I love playing it but there are so many ads that it deters me to play a different game at times. The pay off compared to what you pay to play each game is not equivalent. No matter how good you play you end up having to pay for coins or wait for the daily bonus. A sneaky two-player tile game for aspiring geniuses and would-be word wizards. Enjoy a crazy uno game with these Uno House Rules variations on traditional Uno. In private games, you can invite 2-3 friends. They will receive a toast notification. But everyone has to be present in the lobby in real-time, so you basically need to set up the game through other means before inviting if you expect people to actually come while the lobby is open. I suppose the real-time requirement is necessary since UNO games go on for way too many turns to be fun asynchronously. Each person can take a turn showing everyone around their house or you could even create short videos ahead of time to show during the call. Layer your plates, grab your wine glasses and sprinkle that glitter. Friendsmas is all about the fun, so let ya table setting reflect that! Don’t be worried about going too OTT, there really is no such thing! Want to learn more about throwing sober parties? Contact us with any questions or just to say hey! This electronic game involves splitting up into two teams and trying to get your teammates to guess the word on the screen by describing it in any way possible. Keep guessing new words until the buzzer goes off—if your team is still guessing, then the other team scores a point. This upgraded version has over 5,000 words and phrases so you won’t get bored any time soon!

  65. Популярные фильтры Хейта было столько, что молодому человеку пришлось публично объяснять свою просьбу для Papermag. Пользователь твиттера заверил: он лишь хотел сделать что-то приятное и забавное для своей почившей матери, ведь она, по словам corndog fanatic, сама была достаточно весёлым человеком. Этот рецепт потрясающий, и он отлично работает на гриле! Я рекомендую готовить их «половинками», а не складывать половинки вместе (я использовал только 1/2 ломтика бекона на 1/2 джалепено), и это также помогает сократить время приготовления. Для приготовления на гриле я также рекомендую протыкать зубочистки через каждый собранный кусок, чтобы бекон не упал.
