Post COVID 19 Recovery by Agritech StartUps for the Farmers

India is primarily an agrarian economy, with over half of its population acquiring their business from it. However, the Covid lockdown has hit the cultivating community and influenced their work adversely. Since they are confronting the issue of innovation and everything is turning out to be increasingly digitizing.

Mark Kahn said, "Agritech new companies in India have experienced tailwinds during COVID, as traditional agribusiness supply chains have been disrupted because of lockdowns. Farmers have moved to next-generation agritech stages to buy inputs, sell their harvests, access advisory administrations, and finance their tasks. We accept that post COVID, this move towards digital stages will keep on being accelerated, upheld by the ongoing changes (Farm Bills) passed by the Center.”

The new bill explicitly, the Farmers' Produce Trade and Commerce (Promotion and Facilitation) Bill gives farmers the decision to supply directly to corporates, if they keep up the necessary quality guidelines and consistency, and this specific bill is being seen by agritech and food supply chain new businesses as a door to build market penetration.

Numerous organizations that are Agri-based like post-harvest agri-tech startup Agrojay, a one-stop thorough digital platform for search, discovery, and satisfaction of warehousing for farmers, FPOs, Corporates, and different partners, soil test, farm discussion, etc.

Agrojay launched the concept called “FARMRUT” that allows farmers to sell their products online at better costs. These agritech new companies are bringing innovation to keep the area useful with the joining of new-age technologies.

We should not overlook the attempts to enable our farming by our India's former Prime Minister, Lal Bahadur Shastri who gave the slogan"Jai Jawan-Jai Kisan". This has assisted with avoiding famine and in 1968; the introduction of the Green Revolution was reported by Mrs. Indira Gandhi by giving a unique stamp named the wheat revolution which has engaged the farming society. Indeed, even we should not overlook the commitment of India's former Prime Minister Chaudhary Charan Singh who was the Champion of India's Peasants who fought and represented farmer’s issues and rights, and now Prime Minister Narendra Modi who is discussing Atma Nirbhar Bharat to make India more independent instead of reliant on others.
