Rapid Soil Testing & Agronomy
Stage of adaption :
Crop Planning Stage
Krishitantra has developed a portable and most reliable way to determine the soil quality, now farmer can get his soil report instantly along with interpretation of the soil analysis. The solution is an automated system which takes soil as input and provides all macro and micro nutrients report within minutes, the system requires no expertise to operate and is portable and also can be powered by solar. The system generates report and our cloud-based interpretation and advisory provides the farmer required information on his mobile phone in regional language.
Our system is completely automated which means that there is no manual requirement of
generating the test results, our competition uses a system wherein a trained professional is required to perform the soil tests using the chemical reagents, the probability of getting erroneous results are higher if the chemical composition is mismatched. Another USP of our system is that it provides interpretation of the test results which is patented whereas our competitors provide only the raw results

In India there is only 1 lab to serve 1.42 lakh farmers, our goto market strategy is to appoint partners such as FPO, farmer cooperative society, Farmer NGO companies and sell each unit to these agencies where farmer gets his soil sample to be analysed. We will reach out to these agencies through Agri Fair and word of mouth marketing.
Farmer Awareness is low on requirement of Soil Testing and its benefits
• Hardware – 90,000 INR
• Cartridge (100 Soil Tests) – 35,000
• Hardware – 0 INR
• Cartridge (1000 Soil Tests) – 3,50,000
Since the system is easy to operate, portable and can be operated by anyone with minimal training the opportunity for self-employment in rural area is very high. Also by using the system the fertilizer usage will be optimised due to which farmers input cost will reduce along with better productivity. Ecological benefits inturn will be that soil erosion can be eradicated and also ground water pollution will be avoided.
