BigHaat Muscles Up its Tech Stack to Provide Real Time Crop Care for Farmers
The agri input digital marketplace platform, BigHaat released a comprehensive agri-input stack backed by the robust network of satellites, agronomists & farmers with an aim to deliver autonomous surveillance and crop care in real time. BigHaat has become the first startup to do so.
This facility lets the farmer visit their farm, click an image and upload via the Crop Doctor feature of the BigHaat app. The AI technology then advises the best practices, most suitable inputs and offers dynamic assistance in real time to the farmers. BigHaat’s unique approach is aimed towards automating cropcare across India, giving the farmers a reliable full stack farm management approach.
It is the first time the Indian farmers will get the hands-on experience based on Ai incorporating various data which includes satellite images, ground images, weather forecast, along with other sources and providing output without human intervention.
The startup provides farmers end-to-end crop advisory and a wide range of quality inputs such as seeds, pesticides, fertilizers, nutrients and farm implements by leveraging the power of data, science and technology. Over four million farmers in India have engaged on the platform since their inception in 2015.
Sateesh Nakula, CEO & Co-founder, BigHaat, said, “We are happy to be empowering the Indian farmer community with dynamic information and knowledge with the help of our technology stack. The solution is expected to provide targeted solutions to farmers enabling them to use 20 to 40 percent lesser chemicals & 30 to 60 percent lesser water.”
BigHaat has connected the farmer community with Kisan Vedika, where they can ask their queries in regional languages and expect end-to-end guidance by their team of agri experts.
