Agriculture is one of the biggest employers in the country. Till 2018, the sector employed 50 per cent of the Indian work force and contributed about 17-18 per cent to country’s GDP. What if agriculture gets the tech boost? This is what SmartFarm App – a farm management solution is doing. The app was already available for Android users and has now been released for iOS users as well. SmartFarm is a complete farm management solution that monitors the pre-harvest farming processes.
The latest version of the app will make it available on iPhone and iPad devices. In a statement released on Thursday, the company said that this version of the app will equip the heads of agribusinesses to have complete visibility of near-real-time farming operations and enable access to actionable data insights on-the-go to make timely decisions.
Designed by CropIn, the solution leverages weather advisory, satellite image processing and insights strengthened by Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning to enable efficient operations, and to improve traceability and output predictability. The app helps agribusinesses to enable data-driven farming in their operations by tracking, managing and monitoring every step – from input to execution – all in one place.
With the release of the SmartFarm app on iOS, CropIn is crafting a holistic solution that makes monitoring the entire farming process extremely easy.
The app has already been validated by several organisations in the agriculture value chain including farming companies, agri input firms, and seed production companies, to crop insurance providers and governments. Among the major brands that use SmartFarm to improve their farming processes and associated outcomes are McCain, Syngenta, BASF, Government of Karnataka and the World Bank.
