The Overall platform offerings

CropIn provides a comprehensive platform for government and agribusinesses globally, enabling to analyse & interpret data and derive real time actionable insights on standing crops with projects spanning various geographies. CropIn brings in cutting-edge technologies – Big Data analytics, Artificial Intelligence & Satellite monitoring to interconnect all the stakeholders at different levels of the agriculture ecosystem. The intuitive, intelligent, ever-evolving and self-learning system takes in information from various sources like weather, satellite and ground data and delivers targeted solutions to the government.

Smart Farm

SmartFarm is a global award-winning, robust and flexible Production management solution that enables complete digitization of farms and farmers. It empowers data-driven decision-making and provides complete visibility of people, processes, and performance on a near real-time basis. It connects farmers seamlessly with the organization and ensures the management of the standard package of practices and adherence to compliance and certification. It also helps farmers from pest and crop-health related issues and meticulously manages over-spending and maximizing return on investment.

Smart Ware

SmartWare: The post-production supply chain would be managed through the Smartware platform. The batches produced will be earmarked with unique QR codes throughout its journey from receiving farmers harvest to forming lots and batches to storing grading sorting operations till it is finally packaged or processed into SKU’s which can be purchased by the end consumers. These finished products are labeled with a unique QR code generated by the system to uniquely identify their journey from farm to the consumer.

End customer Traceability solution for promoting Exports

SMART Anti Counterfeit Measures to Gain Customers trust - Non Replicable QR code tracker

Marketplace

MarketPlace : is a technology solution to integrate sellers (farmers) and buyers in the agriculture value chain. This is a unique mobile and web based application that connects the buyers (retailers, kirana stores, end consumers etc) directly with the farmer/sellers. The application can also incorporate warehouse management, customer relationship management, and last mile delivery.

The technology would ideally be used by government agencies or any other procurement companies who supply to local kirana stores, retailers, and even end consumers directly.

SmartRisk

SmartRisk™ is a unique agri- AI/ML solution leveraging multiple sources of data including ground data, weather, and satellite-imagery. The platform combines a cutting edge deep learning engine with interactive, user friendly interfaces. It is a predictive and prescriptive solution for forecasting intelligence. The AI and Machine-learning based platform detects cropping patterns and predicts the future of the crop, thus highlighting the associated risk and opportunity for agri-stakeholders. The government can achieve farm-level crop detection and yield prediction through the SmartRisk capabilities that can also establish the historical performance of every pixel at farm/postcode/state/country level. This enables them to hedge risk and take informed strategic decisions. This technology would help the government have an accurate view at the state level of the acreage under each crop of interest, expected yield and historic growing pattern. This kind of information is helpful in planning the supply chain and logistics, and deciding the market prices.

AcreSquare

AcreSquare – Farmer Application for direct communication channel with the farmers in Local Language. The AcreSquare application will help GoT to engage with the farmers across the state. This platform will allow the government to promote and educate the best agricultural practices to the farmers. Farmers can get information related to the markets, and trending information pertaining to agriculture. Also, farmers can start purchasing the inputs like seeds, chemicals and fertilizers through the application. So the application will come handy to the farmers to manage their each season of production in a planned manner.

  • Get the best practices by the subject matter experts
  • Calendar wise activity planning with steps to follow
  • Provision to purchase inputs for better crop production
  • Government can publish various agricultural schemes which will benefit farmers
  • Advisories for the pest and disease infestations
  • Farmers can call the farmer assistance center for more assistance
