The world may have had a slowdown due to the pandemic this year but that hasn’t stopped technology from advancing towards something bigger everyday as it does. The AgTech sector has seen a massive growth over the last decade and it continues to see a steady growth every year. 2020 may have been a hurdle that many industries have struggled to pass but the AgTech sector has only accelerated even in these tough times.

Artificial Intelligence has empowered agriculture with efficient tools and methodologies to practise, elevating the levels of potential globally. Agriculture has been revolutionised by the power of…


Technology that helps secure the future of those who feed us

The introduction of Agriculture 4.0 is bringing about a revolution in what was once considered one of the riskiest sectors for insurance because of its unpredictability and traditional ways of farming. Digital technology and Precision Agriculture are a few modern methodologies being employed to make agriculture more predictable, profitable, and sustainable. The ability to track, monitor, and manage every aspect of farming with agriculture technology now reduces the uncertainty and offers a protective cover to farmers around the world.

Rapid climate change accentuates the innate unpredictability associated with agriculture. Understandably, a vast majority of the farmers have limited access to…

Genes play a very crucial role in shaping future generations in living organisms. The basic thought about living beings being patterned creatures is based on their origins. For example, if the offspring from a cricketer plays good cricket, it is assumed to have come from the parent’s cricketing gene. Similarly with plants, the genetic origin speaks volumes about the plant and the future offspring as well.

Each plant showcases its own characteristics and there are pros and cons in this regard. Maybe the rose plant in your house should have been giving more flowers than what it usually gives. Maybe…


How AI is Powering Productivity and Profitability

Till recently, an inability to trace where your food comes from was one of the biggest challenges of the food industry. As improved preservation techniques and better transport made it easier to purchase and consume food from any corner of the globe, it became crucial to understand the why, where, and how of food production.

Today’s consumer is well-informed and doesn’t shy away from questioning a brand about their food production and procurement processes. As a result, brands are going the extra mile to source high-quality raw materials and produce goods that adhere to high safety standards. PepsiCo is one…

Using technology to empower farming communities to grow food smarter in a rapidly

Data-driven insights derived from satellite and ground data make scientific cultivation a reality for farmers. From farmer digitisation to meticulously planned and implemented development programs, smart farming technologies provide a solution for sustainable cultivation and improves farmer livelihoods the world over.

The world is changing, and we need to find smarter ways to sustain life without impacting the environment. Digital agriculture focuses on using data-driven insights to guide sustainable food production that is more productive and improves farmer livelihoods through a scientific method of food production.

CropIn’s efforts to make agriculture sustainable for the current and future generations flow with…


Enabling Businesses to Ensure Scalability, Security, and Ease of Use

Recent studies state that an average person can have anywhere between 60 to 90 online accounts, which means that many passwords to remember, too. Even if one uses the same or similar passwords for multiple accounts, it still amounts to a lot of information one retains but does not recall frequently. Sufficient to say, easy-to-remember passwords, reusing the same passwords, or even keeping them written/typed somewhere result in poor password hygiene. Within the workplace, this can lead to disastrous results where sensitive information or critical data can be stolen or misused by hackers. …


AgriTech is transforming farming and food systems at a pace faster than imagined before, and, at CropIn, we are in the habit of leading innovation. We continue to explore new, cutting-edge technologies and digitally empower diverse actors in the agroecosystem to achieve their respective objectives. Considering that CropIn is empowering clients in over 70 countries to maximise their per-acre value, it is critical for us to provide services that are consistent across geographies and deliver an excellent user experience. To achieve this, we recently adopted containerisation and a microservices-based approach to design our applications. So what does that mean?

Transforming the agricultural sector with digital technology that is accessible and beneficial to every farmer

Data-driven insights derived from ground and satellite-based intelligence enable a scientific method of cultivation that is beyond the vagaries of nature. But to make sustainable and scientific agriculture a success, it needs to touch the most important link in the chain — the humble farmer.

Agriculture technology has helped farmers in developed countries improve productivity and enhance the quality of their produce. However, its impact in developing countries is nascent because of the inherent challenges of such economies. Aspects such as fragmented landholdings and lack of farmer awareness make it difficult for smart agriculture to penetrate into such countries. …

The era of digital farming has brought to the fore copious volumes of agri-data that can be harnessed by the different stakeholders to make the agroecosystem more efficient, productive, and streamlined. Transactions that occur at each stage of the supply chain-be it capturing farm-level data using agtech, securing the required certifications for the commodity, or tracking its movement along the supply chain-generate millions of datasets every minute around the world. Moreover, smart farming devices such as farm management software, drones, sensors, and other IoT devices contribute immensely to the availability of real-time data. Ultimately, there is now a need for…

Leverage data to accurately find and nurture the seeds that will feed

With complete visibility from the R&D phase to effective distribution and sales, digitisation gives you the insights you need to choose the best seed varieties suitable for cultivation.

By the year 2050, global agriculture will be tasked with producing 70% more food as per UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) estimates, while only 5% of additional land will be available by then to feed the growing population. As a result, the agriculture industry has turned to technology in search of a workable solution. …
