Kunal Prasad, when asked about the impact and importance of digital solutions in Agriculture was quoted saying, “Digital solutions act as a channel between buyers and the farmers by providing a platform to communicate the needs and understand the sources well. For farmers, digital farming solutions are like the mentors; they provide actionable insights by analysing data accurately and form a knowledge repository for the farmers to make them future-ready. Digital technologies also have made it possible for the farmer and the buyer to have a direct business relationship, and eliminate the middleman.”
