September 2019— “Crop damage due to pest infestations and unpredictable weather conditions in West Bengal can be curbed through technology solutions that have been already implemented in other states like Bihar and Madhya Pradesh,” says Krishna Kumar, CEO & Founder of CropIn in an interview with TOI. Krishna, a technophile in the Agtech industry has kicked up a storm with his inspiring speech to boost up agriculture at 18th ICT EAST, an event hosted by CII (Confederation of Indian Industry) at ITC, Kolkata. “At the moment, we are reaching out to Bengal government to help farmers in the state to produce various crops every year. Government and development agencies of other states have been opting for our solution to bring down the damage caused to agriculture produce due to erratic weather conditions.” CropIn has been working with various seed companies and tea companies in Assam and North Bengal regions. Currently, CropIn has impacted lives of 2.1 million farmers while digitizing 384 varieties of crops. The company is constantly looking for opportunities to expand its reach to various parts of the globe. “Our platform has disseminated agriculture data from various parts of the world. We are ready to share the expertise with Bengal government to help them utilize it for digitizing the farms efficiently,” said Krishna. Farmers in India face numerous problems when borrowing money from banks that impose certain rules and restrictions. CropIn tries to work in collaboration with Banks, Financial Institutions and Insurers to make the loan disbursement process and money borrowing easier for farmers. “We are ready to apply the same approach and make the loan disbursement process easier for Bengal farmers. To utilize our solution, farmers need not pour heaps of money, either the government or seed companies could pay, ” added Krishna.
