Following the spirit of Digital India

FarmGuide has created integrated IT solution to enable the farmers in making proper and timely use of the information available through multiple ICT channels including Web Portals, Common Service Centres and Internet Access Points.

Feeding the rising population has become a challenge due to multiple issues faced by farmers which include natural calamities, lack of farm mechanisation, inadequate storage facilities, outdated and tedious agricultural assessment techniques, lack of technical know-how about crop pattern, soil types and chemical fertilisers; lack of proper irrigation systems and so on.

Knowing that the aforementioned issues arise essentially due to the lack of flow of customised information between stakeholders, FarmGuide decided to step into the picture for digitisation and bridging information asymmetry in agricultural supply chain.

The story of FarmGuide began in 2016 with an appetite for digitising a remote village in Rajasthan that soon transformed into a mission to build technology that will better the future of farming in India.

From producers (farmers) to input providers to wholesale buyers to FMCGs and commodity traders, our products cater all stakeholders in agriculture to bring transparent, efficient and time-bound administration in the sector.

Here is what we are doing
through our products

Digitising The Information

By digitising the agriculture management data, we are eliminating the paper-based information sharing among stakeholders that hinders fault-finding and mid-course correction. This will ensure sustainability and credibility across the agriculture operations.

Integrating Stakeholders Into One System

We are integrating stakeholders in agriculture into a digital system through automated web and mobile platforms to ensure secure and smooth flow of information between them. This will enable them to approach and pursue each other to accomplish their individual goals.

Providing Real-Time Flow Of Customised Information

We ensure real-time flow of customised information to facilitate timely and effective communication between different stakeholders to implement best practices for their respective operations. This will make them self-sufficient in terms of accessing resources and performing operations.

We are doing this by

  • Enhancing efficiency and effectiveness through process redesign
  • Create end to end ICT platform and System(s) Integration Services
  • Reducing administrative cost in implementation
  • Create fiscal space for increased capital expenditure in agriculture
  • Gain insights for evidence-based policy making through big data analytics
