March 2020 – CropIn has been featured as one of the key solution providers in IDH’s (Sustainable Trade Initiative) study on Farm Management Information Systems (FMIS). The study highlighted CropIn’s value propositions and how it uses digital tools to serve a wide range of stakeholders, while keeping in mind the sustainability factor in the design and in business.
The study focused on how data is valuable across the agriculture sector and its usage needs to be evaluated for different stakeholders, and how anonymised data can be monetized by providing data analytics and other value-added services. The study introduced CropIn’s brainchild, SmartFarm and explained how the farm management solution can maximize per acre value through efficient data collection and analysis while acting as a knowledge repository for the farmer through the data collected. The study also focused on CropIn’s predictive and prescriptive solution, SmartRisk, on how the solution helps financial institutions and insurance companies mitigate risks while also helping them design more effective products, using ML and AI based algorithms.
