Indian Agri-tech startups in the year 2021


Over the past years, we have seen that the contribution of the agriculture sector to the country’s GDP hasn't been promising. Even though there had been much technological advancement over the years we still cannot deny that people have been a bit skeptical about bringing technology to agriculture.


To improve this condition, many Agri-tech startups had been introduced in India. Agricultural technology, or Agri-tech, is the application of technology to produce more with less, to make the farming process more efficient, from field monitoring to the food supply chain itself.


These startups generally use cutting-edge technology like artificial intelligence and the internet of things to make it a data-driven business. A data-driven startup is dependable on the collection of data.
